KUALA LUMPUR, May 7 — A man who allegedly tried to tarnish the image of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) by recording a video of him ranting against a traffic policeman while being escorted to the Jalan Tun H. S. Lee police station for a second breathalyser test, has been remanded for two days.

Dang Wangi police chief ACP Mohd Sukri Kaman said the 30-year-old suspect was remanded until tomorrow to facilitate investigations.

Yesterday, the police confirmed that the suspect, who initially failed a breathalyser test was attempting to tarnish the PDRM image by recording the video which later went viral on social media.

He was detained at a roadblock in Jalan Sungai Besi on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. — Bernama
