Man throws chairs on road

SINGAPORE - He behaved aggressively and held up traffic on Bedok Road Tuesday morning by throwing various objects outside a restaurant.

But he did not put up much resistance when the police arrived and arrested him.

A witness known only as Mr Lee told citizen journalism website Stomp that he saw the Caucasian man flinging chairs, flower pots and other objects outside the New Hawa Restaurant into the path of motor traffic.

Mr Lee added that the man was belligerent towards a crowd of onlookers.

"He was very defiant towards the crowd of onlookers and showed aggressive behaviour," he said.

The man was arrested for allegedly committing a rash act after the police were alerted to his antics at about 5.20am.

Onlookers then cleared the road of debris so that motorists could continue their commute, said Mr Lee.

The offence of Rash Act carries a jail term of up to six months and a fine of $2,500. Police investigations are ongoing.
