PENANG: A veteran Singaporean jockey was arrested for allegedly driving a cloned vehicle and assaulting his wife at a hotel at Penang Road here. 

The 45-year-old jockey was picked up at about 3am on Wednesday after his wife, in her late 40s, lodged a report against him at the Penang Road police station.  

He had allegedly slapped and kicked her following an argument. 

His car was taken to the George Town district police headquarters when he failed to produce the registration document. 

Police are checking with Singapore's vehicle licensing board to determine whether the car was cloned. 

Car cloning involves taking the particulars of a legitimate vehicle and applying them to a stolen or condemned car. 

The jockey was remanded for a week by a magistrate’s court yesterday pending investigations on suspected assault and forgery for the purpose of cheating under Section 468 of the Penal Code. 

In another incident, police seized 10 illegal gaming machines said to be worth about RM30,000 from a video arcade at Macalister Road early yesterday and arrested four men, in their 20s and 30s. 

Two of them were the caretakers.  

A police team from the district anti-vice branch raided the premises in an operation codenamed Ops Rattler at about 1am after receiving a complaint.  

The police had monitored the premises for a few days before conducting the raid. 

The video arcade had only been operating for about a week.  

Police are trying to identify the operator of the arcade.
