KUALA LUMPUR: The 32-year-old RapidKL bus driver who rammed several vehicles in Ampang last Thursday has pleaded guilty to consuming methamphetamines.

Md Khairol Anuar Mohamad was accused of using the drug by the police when he tested positive at the Dang Wangi District Police Headquarters Narcotics Investigation Department at 7.40pm last Friday (Aug 17).

He was charged under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 and faces a possible sentence of a jail sentence of up to two years and a possible compulsory period of police monitoring that could be up to three years long.

Md Khairol is also expected to be charged next week for traffic offences.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Amirul Asyraf Abdul Rasid offered bail at RM7,000 in one surety pending the chemist's report.

DPP Amirul Asyraf also asked for the next mention date pending the report

Magistrate Noorasykin Sahat then fixed bail at RM3,000 with one surety pending mention on Sept 24.

Last Thursday (Aug 16) night, a RapidKL bus driven by Md Khairol rammed into several vehicles on a busy road in Ampang.

A video of it has been going viral on social media and messaging apps.

The 90-second footage shows the bus being pursued by several motorcycles, with the riders heard swearing at the driver and telling him to stop.

The bus is shown weaving recklessly through traffic. It rams into two cars but continues its rampage.

It then rams into several other vehicles nearly 100m after the first collision before coming to a stop after being caught in traffic.
