Vietnam Register, the country's quality control agency, has suspended an official who deliberately hit police motorbikes with his car when asked to stop for traffic violations.
Nguyen Thanh Son, who has been working with the Hanoi-based agency for one year, was drunk as he drove and severely damaged two traffic police motorbikes in the capital on Sunday, according to police reports.
A report posted by news website Dan Tri Wednesday said the case had been reported to the Transport Ministry, which runs the Vietnam Register, and the police will be consulted before a final punishment is handed down.
On early Sunday morning, a group of Hanoi police found Son was driving carelessly on the wrong side of the road. They signaled for him to stop but the 27-year-old sped up to escape.
Ten police motorbikes chased car around the West Lake.
When it came to Hang Mam Street, two polices motorbikes managed to block the car, only to get hit.
There was a girl and a foreign man in the car at the time.
Son said he did not want the police to find out that he was under the influence of alcohol.
