KUWAIT CITY, Feb 9: The Misdemeanor Court acquitted a Kuwaiti man of humiliating a police officer attached to the Ministry of Interior and aiding a suspect to escape. The case file indicated the officer was on duty when he gathered information that some youths had assembled for illegal car race and stunting along the Artal Road in Salmi area. Upon arrival to the scene, the officer found a Nissan GT without number plate and ordered the motorist to pull up, but he sped away. While the officer was trying to pursue the suspect, the defendant allegedly obstructed his way and ended up hitting the patrol car, which toppled and got damaged.

The defendant then started hurling insults on the officer and publicly humiliated him. Defense lawyer Sultan Al-Qahtani insisted that his client was innocent of all allegations. He argued there was no concrete proof that his client humiliated the officer in the course of official duty. He also said there was no eyewitness to confirm the submission of the officer, stressing no sane human being will verbally attack a person whose car he had just caused to topple, no matter how crazy he might be.
