The suspect refused to leave the patrol car and said that he wanted to keep praying

He sat in the car for 10 minutes and recited verses from the Quran, Harian Metro reported. 

According to The Star, after several minutes of being persuaded by several policemen, an officer yanked him out of the vehicle.

Five other officers then picked the man up and carried him to the courtroom for the remand proceedings.
