Ngo Xuan Thao, 27, kicked his motorbike over, causing it to fall and splash gasoline over a police officer, and then set fire to it using his lighter. The officer had to be hospitalized with burns on his leg.

Thao had been stopped for speeding and the police were about to seize his motorbike after he failed to produce his driving license and vehicle registration.
