PETALING JAYA: Seremban police have arrested a 25-year-old motorcyclist who rammed into a Road Transport Department (JPJ) officer while attempting to escape a roadblock on the Seremban-Port Dickson highway on Sunday (Sept 17) morning.
According to Port Dickson police chief Supt Aidi Sham Mohamed, the motorcyclist did not have a valid driving licence and his road tax had expired.
"The suspect, aged 25, has a record of eight crimes, including for drugs. He will be taken to the Port Dickson Court on Monday (Sept 18) to be remanded.
"The case is being investigated under Section 353 of the Penal Code for using force to intimidate public servants," he said in a statement on Sunday.
In a video which has since gone viral, a motorcycle going at high speed can be seen ramming into a JPJ officer manning a roadblock along the highway at about 11am.
He was thrown into the air and landed several metres away after the motorcyclist crashed into him.
Aidi Sham said the JPJ officer suffered minor leg and hand injuries and was taken to the Port Dickson Hospital.
The JPJ, in a separate statement on Sunday, said that the motorcyclist has two blacklist entries against him and that his road tax expired in July 2012.
The JPJ said a police report was lodged, and the motorcyclist handed over to the police for further investigation.
"The people are advised not to attempt to evade or act unexpectedly at roadblocks conducted by the JPJ," the statement read.
