KUALA LUMPUR: The driver of the blue Perodua MyVi seen ploughing into several vehicles in a viral video on Saturday (Dec 14) tested positive for ecstasy and syabu.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Fahmi Visuvanathan Abdullah (pic, middle) said a urine test on the suspect tested positive for the two drugs.

"Shortly after the incident, we took custody of the suspect and brought him back to the Dang Wangi police headquarters for further investigations.

"Based on the witness who recorded the video, the suspect allegedly pushed out a disabled person from the car after an alleged robbery along Jalan Changkat, Bukit Bintang," he said when contacted.

He added that the witness then chased the suspect, and in order to flee the scene, he rammed into several cars along Jalan Pudu before being detained by members of the public near Jalan Brunei Utara.

"The victim has yet to come forward to lodge a police report," said ACP Mohd Fahmi.

It was reported that police are investigating an incident, where several motorcyclists chased a car on a congested road after they believed the driver was a robber who pushed a disabled person out of his car.

In the viral video, a motorcyclist's voice can be heard shouting expletives at the driver behind the wheel of a blue car on Jalan Pudu at around 5pm on Friday (Dec 13).

The motorcyclist could also be heard screaming "Dia samun orang" (He robbed someone).

The driver was also seen desperately trying to run away from the motorcyclist, but the rush hour traffic did not make it easy.

According to Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief Asst Comm Zulkefly Yahya, the motorcyclist that recorded the incident was a 20-year-old food delivery rider, who claimed that the driver had pushed a disabled person out of his car.

The driver also hit four cars as he tried to lose sight of the growing number of motorcyclists chasing after him.

The 25-year-old civil servant was eventually apprehended by civilians at around 5.20pm on Jalan Brunei Utara before the police brought him to the Dang Wangi police station.
