'Datuk Seri' detained for creating ruckus at police station

PETALING JAYA - A "Datuk Seri" businessman was arrested for causing a ruckus at the Kuala Lumpur traffic police station early Wednesday.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Sukri Kaman (pic) said that the Datuk Seri has been remanded for one day.

The 45-year-old businessman had gone to the station after a friend complained that he was stopped by police over suspicions of drunk driving.

He came up to the policemen on duty, identified himself as a Datuk Seri and expressed his dissatisfaction over the "police treatment" of his friend.

After being told to allow police officers to perform their duties, the man lost his temper and started shouting profanities.

The police repeatedly warned the suspect to stop his outburst but it fell on deaf ears.

The man was then detained when he refused to heed their warnings.

The case is being investigated under Section 186 of the Penal Code for obstructing a public servant from discharging their duties.
