Don’t hurt me, I’m a cop!’: hit-and-run driver

Don’t hurt me, I’m a cop!’: hit-and-run driver

The perpetrator of an attempted hit-and-run narrowly escaped the de rigeur mob beating on Sunday, but only because he revealed to the converging villagers he was a cop.

Police said the officer had been driving through the capital’s Por Sen Chey district at high speed when he slammed into a moto making a left turn.

Instead of stopping, he sped up and attempted to flee.

After turning down an impassable road, he found himself surrounded and played the cop card.

It bought him just enough time until traffic police were able to take him into the station.
