A Vietnamese traffic police officer went on a wild ride in Hanoi,
clinging to the windshield wipers of a moving bus for nearly a kilometre
after a rogue driver tried to avoid a ticket.
Nguyen Manh Phan pulled over Phung Hong Phuong, 37, in Hanoi on Monday
for driving on the wrong side of the road, VN Express reported. Phuong
refused to produce his papers and rushed back to the bus, prompting the
officer to jump onto the front in an attempt to stop him.
shot by one of Phan's fellow police officers shows the officer trying to
get his footing and dangling precariously from the moving bus as
oncoming traffic whizzes past.
At one point the bus was travelling at 50 kmph (31mph). Phan could be heard shouting: "Call the police!"
driver, who was released in 2010 after serving nearly four years in
prison for a fatal traffic accident, eventually pulled over after being
chased by police and villagers. He was arrested for allegedly acting
against public officials, the officer said.
