GEORGE TOWN: A police inspector has been detained and remanded for three days for allegedly hurling insults and injuring police personnel in an incident at Lebuh Queen here.

Timur Laut district police chief ACP Soffian Santong said based on investigation, the 35-year-old inspector who was attached to a police station in Perak, has been suspended from work for disciplinary offences.

"Police received a call at 1.30am on Saturday informing that the suspect, who was allegedly under alcohol influence, was making a scene.
