Went ballistic over summons

According to Keningau District police chief DSP Nor Rafidah Kasim, perliminary investigations revealed that the altercation occurred when staff from the JPJ Keningau branch issued a fine to the man, reported The Sun Daily.

The inspection subsequently found that there was an offence committed. When a summons was being issued, the disgruntled driver drove his backhoe to topple the vehicle of the JPJ team, causing damage to it.

“The officer managed to avoid injury during the incident. Police arrested the local male driver and seized the backhoe vehicle,” she said.

Nor Rafidah added that the case will be investigated under Sections 186/353 and 427 of the Penal Code and urged the public to avoid speculating on the incident.
