A video shared by Uproxx shows a cop standing along a highway, who suddenly kicked the motorcycle which comes speeding in from the other direction.
After the bike was kicked, it swereved and crashed into the side of the road. The man driving the bike fell to the ground and the police man was seen grabbing his collar aggressively.
The police man who intercepted the motorcycle was Police Senior Sergeant Major Yuttana Sutham, who saw that the driver of the bike was not wearing a helmet so took action to stop him.
The driver, 31-year-old Mr Narong Wannarat, was subsequently found to be carrying methamphetamine, possibly the reason he refused to stop at the checkpoint.
Police were unaware of him carrying any drugs before the arrest was made.
The suspect admitted that the drugs were his and a urine test proved positive for methamphetamine.
The incident happened at Nong Hoi intersection, Chiang Mai and was filmed on a dash-camera from the car behind.
This video clip has gone viral on social media, with many netizens criticising his actions.
However, Police Colonel Piyapan Pattarapongsin of Chiang Mai Regional Police Traffic Center has subsequently released a press release clarify about the incident.
Police are now in search of the owner of the video as to ‘clarity and build understanding’ about the consequences of sharing such clips.
Similarly, almost the same case has happened in the Philippines, April, two years ago when three cops in Paniqui, Tarlac were being probed for allegedly beating up an unarmed man as seen in a 39-second clip.
