Semi-naked man nabbed after ramming into several cars in Johor

JOHOR BARU - A 43-year-old semi-naked man was nabbed after he rammed into several cars parked along a residential street at Taman Johor Jaya here with his Proton Wira.

A witness - who took a video recording of the driver clad only in red underwear and a collared t-shirt - said that the driver reeked of alcohol.

Seri Alam OCPD Supt Jokhiri Abd Aziz confirmed that the incident occurred around noon on Sunday.

He said that the driver, who has been identified as Painin Sumbin, lost control of his vehicle and rammed into the cars parked in front of a row of houses.

"No casualties were reported but cars were damaged in the incident," he said in a statement here on Monday.

However, Supt Jokhiri declined to confirm whether the driver was under the influence of alcohol, adding that the case was being investigated under Section 42 of the Road Transport Act 1987.

A 10-second clip showing the semi-naked driver staggering as he tried to open his car door following the incident has been circulating on Whatsapp.
