The maximum allowed number of people for social gatherings at the time was 8 pax.

Chen was drinking alcohol with her partygoers and singing songs, playing games, and when the police officers searched her belongings, Chen took out a stack of money and officered it to one of the police officers.

After the police officer refused her offer, she then took out a $100 note and offered it to the officer again and said that she couldn’t take it back.

The officer then told her that it was bribery and she then reported it to her superior.

Chen also kicked two police officers in a separate incident in January last year – the police officers were responding to a report that Chen was being a public nuisance at Tanjong Pagar.
