KUALA LUMPUR: Police have recorded a statement from the man believed to be a Datuk who berated a parking attendant at a hotel here on Sept 18, in an incident which has gone viral on social media.

Brickfields district police chief ACP Ruslan Khalid said the suspect’s statement was taken in Brickfields and the investigation would be referred to the deputy public prosecutor.

“This is a legal summons case, which means an arrest cannot be made without a warrant under Section 323 of the Penal Code,” he said when contacted by Bernama.

Yesterday, police confirmed a CCTV recording of the incident in which a man was seen scolding a parking attendant at a hotel here.

Ruslan said based on the parking attendant’s report, this happened after he refused to raise the exit bar upon finding that the man had not paid his RM3 parking ticket.

He said the parking attendant lodged a police report on Sept 19.
