Moto-top swordplay in crowd not cool: police

Moto-top swordplay in crowd not cool: police

Police were not entertained by a Mondulkiri man’s adventurous antics, arresting him and his companion for disturbing public order on Saturday.

The two men first gained authorities’ attention by driving a motorbike recklessly through a crowd of people during a public concert.

Wanting to up the ante, the passenger decided to stand up on the back of the bike and dance to the music, all while waving a sword.

The men were arrested, but only told to sign a pledge promising not to commit such a stunt again.
