A young Emirati driver has been arrested by Dubai Police for reckless driving, reported Gulf News. The man drove his 4X4 vehicle in City Walk during the recent rainy weather and posted videos of his stunts on social media.
His vehicle has also been seized. The police action happened after complaints when the video appeared online. There were two others with him in the vehicle when he performed the stunts.
The Emirati was performing “donuts” stunts near shops and restaurants in City Walk, said Brigadier Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, Director of Traffic Department at Dubai Police said on Saturday, and said that such behavior was unacceptable.
“We caught the reckless driver and referred him to authorities for legal action. His video went viral on social media and other people recorded him on video and then posted it online,” Brigadier Al Mazroui told the newspaper.
The driver will face charges and will have to pay Dh100,000 to recover the car.
