Woman arrested for splashing alcohol on police officers at ZoukOut event

A 32-year-old woman has been arrested for splashing what is believed to be alcohol on police officers during a ZoukOut event in Sentosa.

The police said they had been alerted to a sunken VIP stage during a ZoukOut event held at Siloso Beach on December 4, at around 2.20am.

While assisting to evacuate the partygoers, police officers reported that they were splashed with an unknown liquid believed to be alcohol.

Through ground enquiries, as well as with the aid of footages from the police drone deployed at the event and images from the police officers' body-worn cameras, officers from Clementi Police Division established the woman's identity.

The woman was arrested on December 7 for using criminal force to deter public servants from discharge of their duties.

Police investigations are ongoing.

The offence of using criminal force to deter a public servant from the discharge of his or her duty carries a jail term of up to four years and/or a fine.

The police said they have zero tolerance for such brazen acts of violence towards police officers or public servants carrying out their duties. Firm action will be taken against those who endanger public safety and the safety of officers.

They added: "Members of the public are also advised to abide by the directions of police and security officers during the year-end celebratory events."
