A traffic police chief in Singapore thought he was doing the regional boss of Pirelli tyres a big favour when he allegedly provided him with a five-officer wedding convoy on his big day.
But his grand gesture for the tyres chief has landed him up on charges of ‘conduct prejudicial to the good order and discipline of the police force!
Aziz Osman is accused, amongst other things, of deploying five traffic police officers on motorcycles to form a wedding convoy for the regional manager of Pirelli tyres in Asia.
The groom, Mr John Hooi Tuck Sung is shown on a 45-second film clip doing the rounds on the internet, dressed all in black riding into his outdoor wedding venue to applause, surrounded by the uniformed out-riders, sirens blaring!
Osman, 49, a station inspector allegedly directed his on-duty subordinates to escort the tyres boss to the Botanic Gardens for his wedding ceremony, and then falsified records on their patrol log sheets in 2004.
If convicted,he can be fined up to $500 and/or jailed up to three months.
