KUALA LUMPUR, 25 March 2009: A taxi driver who uttered “polis bodoh” at a police officer was slapped with a RM80 fine by the Magistrate Court here today.
Magistrate Nor Azah Kasran ordered Wong Yoot Weng, 62, to pay the fine after he pleaded guilty to uttering the harsh words at traffic cop Mohd Fauzlei Mohd Zaid, 26.
Wong was charged with uttering the improper words at Mohd Fauzlei, with intention to embarrass and insult the cop, at a traffic light at Jalan Hang Lekir at 5.32pm yesterday.
Prosecuting officer Chief Inspector Charles Aliff Belon told the court that Wong uttered the words after finding a summons notice on his taxi which was parked at the traffic light.
Mohd Fauzlei and a colleague were on duty in the area when Wong approached them and admitted the taxi was his and uttered “stupid police”, he added. — Bernama
