FMT,-KL,-Malaysia,-bite,-cop,-roadblock,-fine,-court,KUALA LUMPUR: The manager of a private company found out the hard way that one cannot bite a policeman when stopped at a roadblock.

Ho Wei Onn, 40, was slapped a RM2,500 fine by the magistrate’s court here today for obstructing a public servant from carrying out his duties and committing the deed.

Magistrate Mahyudin Mohamad Som also ordered the accused to serve three months’ jail if he defaulted on the fine. He paid up.

Earlier, the accused had pleaded guilty to commiting the offences at Km3.9 Lebuhraya Sprint, Brickfields, here at 3am on Jan 7.

He was liable to be jailed up to two years or fined up to RM10,000 or both.

According to the facts, the accused used foul language and acted aggresively when stopped at the road block, resulting in a scuffle breaking out with a policeman manning the roadblock.

During the scuffle, the accused bit the left hand of the policeman.

In mitigation, the accused, who was represented by counsel Mohd Zhafri Aminurashid, asked for leniency saying that he was the sole breadwinner in his family.

Deputy public prosecutor Nur Farah Adilah Noordin appeared for the prosecution.
