Angry cop’s wake-up call lands him in jail

A police officer was arrested yesterday for allegedly firing his gun into the air to awaken his family after he drove home from a boozy, late-night birthday party and found himself locked out of the house, police said.

Sok Lundi, 32, who works at the Ministry of Interior, was detained yesterday over the alleged incident in the capital’s Daun Penh district, deputy district police chief Nhem Sao Nol said.

“He was detained for illegally shooting a bullet into the air in front of his house on Monday after midnight,” he said. “He’s still being questioned.”

A Chaktomuk commune police officer, who asked not be named, said Lundi drove his luxury car home “very drunk” after the party at about 1:30am.

“[He] got angry with his family for not opening the door for him,” the officer said. “So he fired a bullet into the air to wake them up.”

Police said the house doubled as a popular sports shop operated by his father.
