Hieu's car collided with another car at 6 p.m. on August 25 at an intersection in Dich Vong Ward.
When traffic police officers arrived at the scene and asked to meet two drivers, Hieu refused to step out of his car or rolling down his car window.
When he finally stepped out of the car 15 minutes later, reeking of alcohol, Hieu shouted at the officers, spat on them and the threw punches and kicks at them.
As Sergeant Major Truong Hoang Long tried to cuff one of his hand, Hieu "grabbed my baton and lashed it in my face," Long said.
