Following the viral video of a Subaru BRZ drifting between petrol pumps at a Petronas station in Jejawi, the owner of the BRZ and the owner of the petrol station have turned themselves in to the police. Both men were subsequently arrested on charges against endangering the lives of others and possibly causing a fire at a petrol station.
Acting chief of Investigation and Traffic Enforcement Department, Assistant Superintendent Mohd Rizal Emran, said that the two men were arrested at the Arau Police Station at 8.45pm the same day the video went viral. The Subaru BRZ was also seized by the police after the owner turned himself in.
According to Mohd Rizal, the owner of the petrol station confessed that he had indeed organised the stunt and invited his friend to “break in” the station’s ground.
The men have been released on bail but Mohd Rizal stated that both are currently investigated under Section 42 (1) and 81 (2) of the Road Transport Act.
