Hats off to the authorities.

Two men caught on video fighting with motorcycle helmets at Woodlands Checkpoint have been identified and detained, said police and the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) in a joint statement on Friday (May 5).

The viral video was posted in the Facebook group Malaysia-Singapore Border Crossers on April 29.

On Wednesday (May 3) at 12.05am, the police received a report of the video of the incident believed to have taken place on April 28.

With assistance from ICA, the identities of the two men, aged 32 and 47, were established. They were both detained while entering Singapore on Wednesday.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the fight stemmed from queue-cutting along the viaduct leading to the departure motorcycle zone at Woodlands Checkpoint.

Both men allegedly pushed their motorcycles against each other before getting off their motorcycles and fighting with their helmets.

The police said they have zero tolerance towards acts of violence that disturb the public peace. Both men are being investigated for the offence of affray, which carries an imprisonment term of up to one year, a fine of up to $5,000, or both.
