Police in Quang Nam Province in central Vietnam Saturday arrested a man for allegedly assaulting three traffic police officers after they stopped him for flouting traffic rules.

Lieutenant Colonel Vo Van Hai, deputy head of the province traffic police department, said Nguyen Phi Hung, 22, verbally and physically assaulted the officers when he was stopped for jumping a red light, carrying more than one person, and his companions not wearing crash helmets.

Hung of Gia Lai Province to the south, who failed to produce his driving license, chased after officer Nguyen Trung Phuoc when the latter tried to book him.

Phuoc ran into his car to call for backup, but Hung broke the window with his fist, causing the officer's arm to be injured by glass shards.

The man then turned on two other officers who had responded to Phuoc's call and only stopped when officers from the 113 emergency unit arrived.

Tests found that Hung was under the influence.
