Another day, another rich drunk idiot crashing their expensive cars into shit and expecting clemency. This time the deed happened in Guangzhou, when a drunk 30-something woman drove her Porsche the wrong way down a one way street, smacked a taxi cab, then began verbally harassing the occupants before telling police “I know city leaders!”
At 10pm on November 9th, a Guangzhou cab was preparing to turn left when a Porsche driving the wrong way on a one-way-street came speeding down the road and crashed into him. The Porsche driver then got out of her car and staggered drunkenly about. Witnesses reported the driver stank of alcohol, and when she saw the cab’s shaken passengers she refused to apologize to them, but rather called them “shameless” and swore at them.
When the police arrived, they attempted to administer a sobriety test to the inebriated woman, but she refused it and instead screamed “I know city leaders!” She then got into her car and proceeded to ignore the incredulous traffic cops for the next two hours.
The situation was finally resolved when the woman’s family and friends showed up to escort her to a hospital for blood tests. Though the woman claimed she can’t drink due to her “severe high blood pressure and high cholesterol,” surprise surprise, she failed the sobriety test with flying colors and was charged with drunk driving.
The alarming frequency of these ludicrous displays of haughtiness makes one wonder if there is some secret Chinese Skull & Bones club that frequently hazes in potential members by forcing them to see what crimes they can get themselves out of using only their superior intellect and extensive guanxi.
“Did YOU know that I happen to know city leaders?”
