Flight attendant jailed for road rage incident
Furious with a fellow motorist for cutting into his lane, he punched his victim twice.
But flight attendant Abdul Hadi Abdul Harris, now 26, was not done with van driver Iskandar Mohamed Noor, now 42.
Hadi stormed to the van, which belonged to the event management company Mr Iskandar worked for, Essential Werkz, removed its in-car camera and flung it into a nearby construction site.
The $299 camera was damaged.
Mr Iskandar called the police and Hadi was jailed for a month yesterday after pleading guilty to one count of voluntarily causing hurt.
A mischief charge involving the damaged camera was taken into consideration.
At around 10.35am on July 21 last year, Mr Iskandar was driving along Clementi Road towards Ulu Pandan when he encountered road works.
He filtered into Hadi's path, causing the younger man to apply his brakes.
Angry, Hadi honked and overtook the van, gesturing to Mr Iskandar to stop.
After getting out of their vehicles, the men argued and Hadi punched his victim's cheek twice.
He stopped the assault only when his girlfriend, Ms Bernice Lim Hui Ying, 24, separated them.
Hadi drove off with her after damaging Mr Iskandar's car camera.
Mr Iskandar went to the National University Hospital with a small bruise and tenderness on his head and cheekbone areas.
He was given two days' medical leave.
For voluntarily causing hurt, Hadi could have been jailed for up to two years and fined up to $5,000.
