SELANGOR, MALAYSIA — A viral video shows a woman allegedly using derogatory language towards Malaysian police officers in a recent incident believed to have taken place in the Gombak area.
The 25-second video portrays the individual, who is believed to be a police officer herself, raising her voice and stating that the particular police officer is not worthy of reprimanding her.
“You’re just a corporal, not worthy of speaking to me. You speak as if you’re the OCPD (Officer in Charge of Police District), you’re not worthy.”
“You should become an officer first, corporal. Hey, corporal, acting all high and mighty, even though your rank is low,” she told the police officer.
Involved in another argument with public
In addition to that, the female police officer, known as “Inspector Sheila,” was reported to have caused a disturbance in the parking lot of a shopping center located in Brickfields.
In another video shared on Twitter, the female officer can be seen scolding a member of the public using offensive words, seemingly demeaning the individual.
“In such a big parking area, she opens his car door and shouts… hey, then she says I’m crazy. This is the person.”
“You look beautiful, look at how she’s dressed, very beautiful. Young people should imitate his style. Sexy right?” she kept recording with her phone: “Now this is the person,… I like your sunglass, and she said she has a baby.”
The civilian can be heard attempting to retaliate, but “Inspector Sheila” continues to scold her.
“What’s wrong with you? Did you just literally harass me right now? Go away,” the civilian asked the officer to leave the parking area.

Police have confirmed the arrest of the female officer
According to Astro Awani, the Selangor police have confirmed the arrest of the female police officer for using vulgar and demeaning language toward her subordinates.
Selangor Police Chief, Datuk Hussein Omar, stated that the civilian employee was arrested at 1:20 PM on Sunday (18 June) at the Gombak District Police Headquarters.
“The Crime Investigation Division, Gombak District Police Headquarters, has apprehended a 35-year-old local woman.”
The police have also seized her mobile phone to assist in the investigation under Section 506 of the Penal Code, Section 186 of the Penal Code, and Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act,” he said in a statement.
According to Hussein, the suspect will be released on bail once the investigation papers are completed, as there are several other reports filed against the same suspect.
“Inspector Sheila” is under investigation for another case
According to Brickfields District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Amihizam Abdul Shukor, an investigation has been initiated after they also received a report regarding the recent incident involving “Inspector Sheila.”
Based on the report, the complainant alleged that the incident occurred at 5:26 PM on Sunday when they and their family parked their vehicle at the location.
The investigation revealed that a disagreement arose when the suspect wanted to park their vehicle next to the complainant’s vehicle, but the driver’s and rear passenger doors of the complainant’s vehicle were open.
The complainant explained that their grandmother was changing the diaper of a relative’s child at that time.
However, the suspect was dissatisfied and honked the horn while shouting and berating the complainant and their family.
Furthermore, according to Amihizam, the suspect also mocked the complainant’s revealing clothing while recording a video before the dispute was diffused by a witness at the scene.
Currently, the investigation will proceed under Section 509 of the Penal Code and Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955.
