A 39-year-old was arrested this Tuesday in Geylang after he evaded a police roadblock and led officers on a car chase, before colliding into 4 other vehicles. The man, who is believed to have been on drugs during the incident according to the Chinese daily, was charged with committing a rash act, and drug and traffic-related offences.

The man had evaded a roadblock placed along Guillemard Road towards Paya Lebar Road and refused to accede to a police officer’s demands that he stop his vehicle. Instead, the man allegedly sped off and subsequently hit 2 taxis, a van and a police vehicle.

No injuries were reported. Investigations are ongoing.

Car-related offences appear to be on the rise. Just last week, a 33-year-old Maserati driver was charged in court over the weekend after he accelerated his car, plowed into and dragged a traffic police officer for about 100 metres before fleeing the scene.

The driver – Lee Cheng Yan – is believed to have injured the on-duty policeman in the hit-and-run incident, that occurred on Friday night around 9.20pm, to avoid enforcement checks. He was charged with causing grievous hurt with a rash act in court the next day.
