Woman Who Evaded Taxi Fare & Hit Driver Arrested Within a Day After Committing Her Sovereign Act

On some days we see the best that mankind has to offer, restoring our faith in the world.

And then on some days, we see the utter worst that make you wonder if the extinction of our race might be a good thing after all.

Fortunately, we can always rely on our police force to deal out swift justice and maintain peace (at least in Singapore) within a day.

Today, we bring you an update on a piece of news we wrote about yesterday.

If you missed it, don’t worry. Here’s a quick recap.

Woman Assaulted Cab Driver After Refusing To Pay

It’s one thing to not pay, and another to assault a cab driver. But to do both?

A female passenger boarded the taxi of the father of Facebook user Kelvin Chua, who detailed the encounter in his post.

Not wearing a mask was only the first of her acts, as she also asked to borrow the driver’s phone and proceeded to use it through her journey without returning it.

Upon reaching her destination, she asked him to “wait here” without explanation and promptly left. When he pursued her for payment, she then begun her assault and even attacked him with a pizza board.

While he managed to get away unharmed by blocking with his arm, his watch was damaged.

If you thought that was the end, you thought wrong.

She returned once more to grab the NETS machine and fling it towards him, damaging the machine as it was held back by the cord.

Swift & Decisive

Maybe the policemen involved in this investigation were trained by the Singapore Armour Regiment, as they were truly swift and decisive.

Heh. A little army joke there.

Within a day after the police report was made, they have apprehended the woman yesterday afternoon at 3:20pm.

Not only is she facing charges for both causing hurt and fare evasion, but she is also being investigated for breaking COVID-19 safe distancing measures and is suspected of being involved prior fare evasion cases.

Yep, she’s probably done this more than once.

She could be jailed for up to a year and/or fined up to SGD$5,000 for her assault, and she could be fined up to SGD$1,000 for evading her cab fare.

If she is confirmed to have done this more than once, then she could be fined up to SGD$2,000 and/or jailed for up to six months.

So, what’s the lesson here?

Yes, just don’t be a piece of sh*t. Or the mata will come catch you.
