A 72-year-old Grab driver drove to St James Power Station in the unearthly hours of 5th May 2018, and a 26-year-old man sprang a surprise jump onto the hood of the driver’s car.

The young man was allegedly celebrating his 26th birthday before the incident happened.

He was charged in court on 7th May 2018.

 

Hello!! Do u have nothing better to do than to bully a 72 years old grab driver? My dad has done nothing to provoke u. He jumped on his car and your friend even shouted “ we apologised already, what’s more u want?” Fearing for his safety, my dad drove off to prevent confrontation. Please share and make him famous. Dun think you can escape just like this. I will get you!

The video was posted by the driver’s son, Alan Koh, on what took place that fateful night, near Envy Dance Club.

According to Koh, a person claiming to be friends with the 26-year-old, Chee Chu Siong, contacted him to offer an apology on his behalf.

Koh added that Chee was also agreeable to paying compensation then.

On 6th May 2018, Koh shared that his father, himself and Chee were in negotiations of the damages’ cost but no actual conclusion was made.

This was because the car serving centre was closed at that time, and the Kohs were unable to obtain a quotation for repairs.

The Koh family expects Chee to bear the full costs of the repair as the family is not extremely wealthy.

Even if they had the financial ability, they would not pay the costs as they felt that it was not logical for them to pay for “the mistakes that someone else made”.

Koh also shared that a man offered to help them by spearheading a crowdfunding exercise, but the family declined the kind gesture.

After a service centre’s diagnosis, the total sum amounted to S$14,967.48.

The photo of the invoice was shared to Mothership.sg:

We hope that this case study serves as a warning to all who wants to commit a rash act. Be wise and think twice!
