Dubai Court of First Instance has sentenced a Moroccan man for one year on several accusations against him. He was charged with the accusations of drink driving, consuming alcohol and assaulting the officers, assaulting a taxi driver and damaging properties.
The 24-year-old defendant refused to pay the fare of the taxi, drove off the taxi, clashed it into a house and assaulted the taxi driver as well as police officers.
The Pakistani taxi driver claimed that the Moroccan man was a passenger of his taxi. After he had dropped him in Mirdif the accused kept him waiting to make payment. “He went into a villa and I kept waiting. After some time, I stepped out of the taxi leaving the engine on as I wanted to look for him. I saw him near the villa damaging a parked car with a bicycle. I tried to stop him, but he assaulted me,” said the driver.
After some time the drunken man rammed the taxi to an entrance of another villa and sped off. The taxi driver immediately informed the police. When the police arrived at the site the accused assaulted and insulted the two officers.
He kicked the door of the police vehicles when the police were trying to get him inside after arresting him. The court found him guilty in several accusations and gave one-year imprisonment. He has also been referred to the Misdemeanours Court in connection with the other charges.
