A 16-year-old boy driving his motorcycle without a license and car plate in Chengdu actually called his father to come and beat up the police officer who stopped him.
Xiao Yan was reportedly stopped by the police on Thursday afternoon at the intersection of Zong Fu Road and Hong Xing Road in Chengdu. Officers discovered that he was driving the motorcycle with no plates and no driver’s license.
Chen Yu, the officer who stopped the teenage boy, asked Xiao how old he was. The ever-so-clever teen first told Chen that he was 20, but when asked again, he said he’d just turned 17.
When his lie failed miserably, the boy insisted on leaving the scene. He argued with officers for around three minutes, until he called his father and told him that he’d been hurt by the police.
“Dad, come here. I was stopped by the traffic police and now I have bruises all over my body,” the boy said.
The boy’s father arrived at the site around 20 minutes later and began shouting at police, insisting that his son should get a medical check.
“You’ve hurt someone so he should be sent to the hospital for medical check,” the man was heard shouting.
Meanwhile, the police patiently attempted to explain to the father that it was illegal for the underage boy to drive and that the guardian should take responsibility.
The words went in one ear and out the other as the father used his mobile phone to attack the police officer. He then punched the officer down to the ground.
Officers arrived at the scene to escort the boy and his father to the station for further investigation, and Chen was sent to the hospital for his injuries.
That evening, the teen and his father were arrested for obstructing and attacking a police officer. Justice served.
