Blatant violation: A traffic lance corporal has filed a complaint with the Fintas Police Station accusing a Kuwait youth, his brother and father of assaulting him, reports Al-Anba daily. In his complaint, the lance corporal said he stopped the youth for breaching traffic rules while driving on the Fahaheel Expressway. When he demanded to see the youth’s driving licence and ID, the latter instead of obeying attempted to run over the man in uniform and escaped and drove off. The complainant pursued the youth until he pulled over in front of a house in Fintas. At this point the father and brother of the youth came out of the house and assaulted him as he ordered the motorist to get into his vehicle. The father also threatened to shoot the lance corporal with a hunting gun and helped the suspect to escape. The case has been referred to the Public Prosecution.
