38-year-old Tan Chun Feng pleaded guilty to three charges that includes a rash act endangering the personal safety of others and mischief, and she was sentenced to 8 weeks imprisonment.
She had attacked the bus captain after missing her stop, before peeling her cell’s padded lining while she was inside police lockup later that night, according to Channel NewsAsia.
The incident happened on 17 October last month, when Tan boarded Tower Transit bus number 143.
She missed her stop and had thought that the bus captain didn’t allow her to alight on purpose, before taking a video of him and cursing.
She then reached out to pull off his mask while the driver was driving, so that she could identify him for her video.
The driver then tried to fend off the woman, and she then pull on his left arm and struck the driver’s face, resulting in his glasses falling off.
The police were then alerted to the incident, and she was then subsequently arrested.
Damaging police lockup cell
At about 3.20am, Tan (who was inside a police lock-up cell) noticed that the padding lining had a tear, and she then went to peel it off some more.
She caused damages of about $1,638 to the cell.
