Three police officers sustained injuries while trying to arrest a man who was seen riding a motorcycle recklessly in Ang Mo Kio earlier today (Aug 4).
The police had came across the 39-year-old man at Block 405 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10, at 9.16am.
The man did not heed instructions to stop his vehicle and attempted to flee, said the police in a media release after a video of the incident went viral online.
Police officers caught up with the man, who then turned violent and caused hurt to three officers in the process.
The man was subsequently arrested for suspected drug-related offences, suspected drink-driving and voluntarily causing grievous hurt against public servants. He will be charged in court in Aug 5.
The three officers subsequently received medical treatment at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. One of them remains hospitalised due to head injuries while another is recovering from a broken thumb bone sustained during the arrest.
Thanking members of the public who stepped forward to assist in the arrest, the police added that they take a serious view of hurt against officers who are discharging their duties.
