Two men, aged 50 and 53, were arrested by the police yesterday (Aug 21) for making a nuisance of themselves at a bak kut teh stall along Balestier Rd on Aug 19.
Stomp reported the incident after Stomp contributor Dany alerted us to a video on Balestier Bak Kut Teh (Kian Lian)'s Facebook page of one of the men creating a ruckus.
In the video, he throws a container of chopsticks to the ground before taking a chair and slamming it into a rack of snacks nearby.
He then pushes over a bun steamer causing it to break and scatter across the floor in pieces.
The eatery estimated damages to be worth around $5,000.
According to Shin Min Daily News, one of the men had attempted to converse with a waitress in Hokkien, but the latter could not understand him, causing him to fly into a rage.
The police said in a release that the men were arrested for public nuisance after follow-up investigations by officers from Tanglin Police Division.
The 53-year- old man is also being investigated for a separate offence of rash act.
