Failed hit-and-run lands top cop in police station

A commune police chief in Tuol Kork is feeling the heat after an alleged drunk driving incident on Tuesday.

Police said the inebriated lawman/suspect drove his Hilux truck, complete with government plates, into the victim at about 10pm in the capital’s Russey Keo district.

Instead of listening to the other driver’s request for compensation, the cop attempted to hot-foot it, only to be blocked by the aggrieved driver. They’re now working out compensation at police HQ. Koh Santepheap
