Altercation on East Coast Road: female cyclist and driver arrested for reckless acts

SINGAPORE — A female driver and a cyclist, believed to have been involved in an altercation on East Coast Road that was captured on video, have been arrested and accused of committing rash acts.

The incident took place near the I12 Katong shopping mall on East Coast Road around 3:20 p.m. last Friday (2 June).

A video circulating on social media shows a female cyclist obstructing a grey car on the three-lane road.

In the video, other drivers can be heard honking their car horns as the cyclist, wearing a yellow top and blue helmet, speaks on the phone while blocking the car.

She then jumps onto the car’s bonnet as the vehicle attempts to pass her.

Another video, seemingly recorded by a pedestrian, shows members of the public witnessing the altercation.

They were shocked when the female cyclist abruptly jumped onto the bonnet of the vehicle, and despite this, the car sped off to cross the traffic light.

According to Lianhe Zaobao, Singapore Police Force confirmed on Monday (5 June) that they have received a report regarding the incident, and the individuals involved are a 31-year-old cyclist and a 49-year-old driver.

Both individuals have been arrested for their alleged involvement in a reckless behavior case.

The Straits Times revealed that the cyclist involved in the incident has been identified as Nicolette Tan Shi-en, while the driver is Elaine Michele Ow.

Both individuals have been charged with one count of committing a rash act that endangers the personal safety of others. The cases have been adjourned to 4 July.

Additionally, Tan is facing an additional accusation of causing obstruction to others.

The ST also reported that according to records from the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority, Ow holds the position of director at Prodigy Productions, while Tan has previously worked as a secretary at various companies, including Gabriel Law Corporation.
