Man Who Drove Onto Grass Patch & Pavement In Yishun Arrested For Drink Driving


Even if you think you’re alone and no one is watching, you’re never rarely alone.

In this digital age of phone cameras, anybody (you may not even notice it) can take video of your “naughty” act and post it up on Stomp, Facebook or any other social media platforms.

This case is a good example of that:

Man Who Drove Onto Grass Patch & Pavement In Yishun Arrested For Drink Driving

One man in Singapore was caught driving on a pavement in Yishun.

In the video clip posted by a Facebook user, a red car decided to drive on the grass instead of the road because why not.

The incident happened on a pavement near Khatib MRT station on Monday, 14 October 2019.

According to The Straits Times, a statement made by the Singapore Police Force said that the incident happened along Block 201 Yishun Avenue 2 at around 11.20pm.

It could’ve happened anywhere in Singapore. But it happened in Yishun.

See, even Spock thinks that’s fascinating.

The 41-year-old man has since been arrested for drink driving.

Online Reaction

Of course, netizens found the incident hilarious and comments had many of the laugh-out-loud, tear-filled emojis:

Many references were also made to Grand Theft Auto, a video game where players are encouraged to drive around recklessly and knock pedestrians down.

Who can blame them? The scene looks like a scene straight out of an action movie, complete with a high-speed car chase where the hero drives the car on every surface except the road.

The Facebook post which was posted on Monday, 14 October 2019, on the day of the incident itself has had 3.9K shares, 73 comments and 450 reactions.

Hmmm, it’s one way to make a name for yourself. Even more so than a flash mob along Orchard Road.

Not the Only Drunk Driving Incident

Well, I’m not too sure if the 41-year-old man driving the red car is a big-time celebrity or just another face in the crowd, but earlier this year, there was a far more high-profile drunk driving case.


George Clooney’s sister-in-law, no less, was arrested for drink driving.


You can read the full article here.

The gist of the article is that George Clooney’s sister-in-law, Tala Alamuddin Le Tallec was arrested by the police after she was caught driving along Holland Village after having two glasses of wine and a glass of champagne.

The police officer said that she had trouble finding the handbrake when he had stopped her for a breathalyser test, and she couldn’t give an immediate response to where she was before he stopped her.

She got three weeks jail and a fine of S$6,400. And it wasn’t even her first offence. Duh.
