A screen capture of the video that went viral showing the motorcyclist being run over by the rent driver.

ARGUMENTS are a fact of life in any relationship as no two people will see eye-to-eye on everything all of the time. This means that it's important that you and your significant other learn how to deal with arguments and how to resolve issues without it going too far.

What's also important is to not drag other people who have nothing to do with the dispute into your arguments. Unfortunately for the motorcyclist in Gombak, that's just what happened to him. Or at least that's what one viral video alleges.

Is it true that a motorcyclist was run over by a driver who had just had an argument with his wife?



A social media viral clip showing a car ramming into a motorcycle is believed to have occurred when the car driver tried to drive off after an argument with his wife.

Acting Gombak district police chief Supt Noor Ariffin Mohamad said following the incident the suspect was detained at 7.45pm on Thursday (Nov 30) at Jalan Bidara, Selayang.

"Investigations found that the incident in the 18-second footage is believed to have happened yesterday (Nov 29) at Jalan Tun Teja 3, Taman Tun Teja, Rawang, at 3.30 pm," said Supt Noor Ariffin in a statement on Thursday.

"The car driver was driving away from his wife after they had an argument.

"The victim (motorcyclist) was at the scene and tried to stop the driver but was rammed," he said, adding that the victim sustained minor injuries on the elbow, hand, and leg.

He said the case is being investigated under Section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder and Section 337 of the same Code for causing injury by a reckless act endangering the life or safety of others.

Noor Ariffin urged members of the public with any information on the case to contact investigating officer ASP Agilan Iswaran at 019-523 0801 or the Gombak District Police Headquarters operations room at 03-6126 2222. - Bernama
