Why are you fleeing police roadblock, bro?


SEPANG: Fearing his brother’s scolding more than police action, a 21-year-old driver decided to flee a roadblock along the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP).

Dashcam footage of the incident involving a black Lexus SUV had gone viral showing police flagging down the vehicle to stop but it just sped off.

OCPD Asst Comm Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof said the incident occurred on Saturday morning at KM47.8 of the LDP from Puchong towards Cyberjaya.

“A report was lodged by a policeman manning the roadblock at 11.30am on Sunday. The inspector claimed that he was on duty there with six other men when the black SUV was ordered to stop.

“When they approached the vehicle, it sped off,” he said, adding that the team could not ascertain the vehicle model or the licence plate number because it happened too fast.

The owner of the vehicle, a 31-year-old man, turned up at the Sepang police station at 6.30pm on Sunday.

“According to him, his younger brother was driving the vehicle.

“The 21-year-old sped off because he was afraid his brother would scold him for driving with an expired licence,” ACP Wan Kamarul Azran said, adding that the suspect surrendered at the same police station at 8pm on Sunday.

A urine test on the driver came back negative for drugs.

“We have issued a Pol.257 summons to the suspect for driving with an expired licence.

“The investigation papers will be referred to the Deputy Public Prosecutor for further instruction,” said ACP Wan Kamarul Azran.
