JOHOR BARU: A 53-year-old unemployed woman was arrested after she wrote the word babi (pig) on a summons issued to her by a traffic policeman.

The woman was given the summons for illegally parking her gold-coloured Mercedes Benz along Jalan Tun Abdul Razak at about 8.50pm on Tuesday.

When the policeman handed her the summons to sign, she gave it back with the offen­ding word written on it.

“She also screamed at the policeman that her name was babi,” Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Sulaiman Salleh said in a statement yesterday.

He added that the policeman warned her of her unruly beha­viour but she started screaming at him even more and was arrested.

The woman will be charged under Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955 and could be fined up to RM100 if convicted.

ACP Sulaiman advised the public not to use harsh words on or threaten policemen to show dissatisfaction because stern action would be taken against offenders.
