‘Shouty’ policewoman arrested after viral incidents


PETALING JAYA: The police officer who got herself into hot water for shouting at her colleagues and arguing with a female civilian has been arrested.

The suspect, 35, was picked up at around 1.20am yesterday.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Hussein Omar Khan confirmed the arrest and said several police reports had been lodged against her.

“The suspect will be granted bail after investigations are completed,” he said in a statement yesterday.

It is said that the suspect is attached to the Bukit Aman Commercial Crimes Investigation Department, which is also carrying out an internal investigation.

The policewoman went viral online last week after she was captured in video shouting at a rank-and-file policeman.

Another clip surfaced online soon after showing a woman, believed to be the suspect, fighting with another woman over a parking lot in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur.

On June 16, Comm Datuk Hussein said the cop in question had berated two policemen in Taman Sri Gombak and that she was also investigated for threatening to hit a civilian.

“We have two investigation papers (open).

The first is being investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation, based on a police report made by a civilian.

“The second is based on a report lodged by two policemen under Section 186 of the Penal Code and Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955 for preventing a public official from carrying out his duty and using foul language (respectively),” he added.
