Enraged British biker in viral video to be charged

KAJANG: Police here are wrapped in a "he said, she said" case of road rage, involving a British national and two Malaysians on the KL-Seremban Highway.

A video of the expletive-filled tirade between the 39-year-old Briton, the driver and his fiancé has gone viral on social media.
A screengrab from the video showing the biker shouting at the driver.

In the video, the Briton who was riding a Harley, was seen shouting at the MyVi driver claiming that he was nearly knocked off his motorcycle, and that the driver and passenger flashed him an obscene gesture.

"You almost knocked me off, I said don't and then she (pointing to the passenger) gave me the bird. Who the f*** are you?" he was seen saying on the video.

The Briton egged the driver to "get out of the car" for a confrontation, while the MyVi driver responded loudly, asking the motorcyclist to follow him to the police station.

He was later heard calling his father on the phone and asking if he had a "police friend", before informing him that a man had broken his windshield.

The wife of the British suspect, a 28-year-old who only wanted to be known as Marie, claimed her husband was riding his Harley on the fast lane, while she was in a chauffeur-driven car behind him.

She claimed the MyVi, driving on her husband's left, clipped the number plate of his motorcycle while trying to overtake a car.

Marie admitted that her driver forced the MyVi to the side of the highway, but claimed they only did that because the MyVi driver was not responding to their calls to pull over.

Marie also claimed the couple in the MyVi used abusive word towards them as well.

However, she declined to comment when asked if the suspect broke the windscreen and windows of the MyVi.

Marie, who has been living in Malaysia with her spouse for about 15 years, said that they were cooperating with the police and they would "pay for whatever wrong" they were found to have done.

She said she still had a high view of Malaysia and its people.

"Stuff like this happens in other countries but social media has made it a lot worse. I will not leave Malaysia because of one incident.

"I am not a racist, I actually love Malaysia. I really do," she said.

The incident, which police said occurred near the Universiti Putra Malaysia exit of the highway at about 6.30pm Sunday, ended with no arrests.

However, Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Willey Richard said the suspect is expected to be charged at the Kajang magistrate's court Tuesday for damage of property and criminal intimidation.
