Maserati Driver Arrested
Earlier this week, a social media storm erupted when a video of a Maserati in Lorong Chuan was released.
That video shows the car speeding through the estate and the driver acting really recklessly. Within hours, the video went viral and on Wednesday (12 Sep), police arrested the man, although his personal details were not released.
Netizens being netizens, they dug up all sorts of details about the man behind the wheel. Here’s what has been reported so far:
1. Allegedly a geography teacher at NUS
Both AsiaOne and The Straits Times report that the Maserati driver is a geography professor at NUS. When asked about this, a university spokesman said,
As this is a traffic incident, it would be best to refer to the police for the details.
2. Reportedly from China
Not that it matters where he’s from, since there are idiotic drivers everywhere. But curious netizens have found out that the driver is from China. Outlets like The Online Citizen add that he is a professor from Guangzhou, in southern China.
3. High AF SES
Britney Spears said it best in 2013 when she sang,
You want a Maserati? You better work, b***h
A brand new Maserati in Singapore will set you back at least $400,000.
4. A really good professor
Road rage aside, the Maserati driver appears to be a really good professor. Zaobao reports that the professor won the National University Research Award for outstanding performance in February this year.
He was later appointed a Distinguished Professor of the university.
Based on that information, MustShareNews did a little digging and found that the only Geography Professor to have received a University Research Award this year was Professor Henry Yeung.
And just like Zaobao reported, Prof Yeung completed his undergraduate studies at NUS and his postgraduate studies in the United Kingdom.
When we tried to visit NUS’ website congratulating Prof Yeung on his success, we found this page:
…the mystery deepens.
Police investigations ongoing
The police are looking into the matter and it is believed that the Maserati driver is still in remand. Remember, kids, road rage is never cool.
