On March 21 afternoon, a team of traffic officers caught Sinh driving a truck over speed limit on National Highway 1A located in Loc Son Commune of Phu Loc District.
The police signaled him to stop, but he ignored their requests, according to Major Vo Hong Quang, deputy chief of Hue’s traffic police bureau.
However, the police finally seized his truck, he added.
When Lieutenant Dinh Viet Phuoc was making a report on his traffic violations, Sinh approached him to beg for a mercy but Phuoc refused.
After being punished, Sinh suddenly jumped out of the vehicle to chase after Phuoc and attempted to chop him with a scimitar in hand but Phuoc escaped.
Sinh then fled away but after traveling for 16 kilometers, police arrested him.
He is facing charges of “acting against on-duty officers”, a police said.
