18-Year-Old Threatens JPJ Officer With A Knife After Failing Driving Test For The 4th Time
Driving tests can be nerve-wrecking, but this teen from Nilai really went off the deep end after failing the exam for the fourth time
An 18-year-old college student reportedly pulled a knife on an officer of the Road Transport Department (JPJ) after he was told to pull over mid-exam and that he had failed his driving test.
New Straits Times reported that the incident happened at 10.23am yesterday, 8 January at a junction in Batang Benar, Mantin in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan.
According to Nilai district police chief Supt. Mohd. Nor Marzukee Besar, the suspect committed a number of mistakes during the test, including not stopping at a red light
"Following that, the officer told the suspect he had failed and asked him to stop the car 50 metres from a traffic light," Mohd. Nor Marzukee said.
As they were about to change seats, the suspect suddenly whipped out a 30cm-long knife and pointed it at the officer's right rib, insisting that he wanted to pass the driving test
Fortunately, the officer managed to open the car door and exited the vehicle. He quickly called a candidate coordinator as well as the police, who rushed to the scene and apprehended the suspect.
The teen, who is from Kuala Lumpur, was taken to the Mantin police station. A urine test conducted on the suspect came back negative for drugs.
The case is currently being investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation.
This goes without saying, but future drivers - please don't threaten your JPJ officer, okay? Just keep calm and try not to get to anxious when you encounter these:
