The Man, Song, and the Woman, Shih Rode Home in a Cab in the Midnight Hours of Yesterday after They Got Drunk, the Woman Wanted to Barf, and Had Started an Altercation with the Cab Driver, Lin; the Wanhwa Police Had Six Officers Gone to the Scene to Handle the Matter, as the Officer, Weng Subdued Shih, He’d Used His Knee to Pin Down the Woman’s Face, and Smacked Her Head, Then, He’d, Kicked the Woman’s Head Two More Times, the Locals Filmed the Entire Process, Streamed it Online, and the Online Community Ranted on How the Officer Went Overboard in Measures of Making the Arrest.
This was the second case after last month’s incident when the officers arrested a teenager who refused to stop for a check, the Wanhwa Police held a press conference, and apologized publicly, admitted that the officer had gone overboard, and that they’re handing down the punishments for him immediately, gave him a reprimand, and transferred him to the backup squad teams.

Based off of understanding, the forty-four year-old man, Song and his twenty-one-year-old girlfriend, Shih, two nights ago were drinking in Wugu, Hsinbei City, as Lin found a cab early yesterday morning to return to Taipei, on the way, Shih had a hangover, the driver, Lin told her not too barf inside his car, demanded that Shih keep it down until he’d parked by the side of the road then do it, Song was displeased, and started cussing the driver out, they started in argument.
As the driver drove across the Zhongxiao W. Road and Xining S. Road intersection, the driver Lin parked the car, demanded both to get out, they’d started arguing, pushing and shoving each other on the streets, and the pedestrians called the cops; the Wanhwa Police Substation’s Ximenting Substation sent out six officers, subdued Song and Shih.
But after Shih was on the ground, the thirty-one-year-old male officer, Weng used his knee, to push Shih’s face, and smacked her head, then, kicked her head twice, the entire process was filmed, and streamed onto FB, and it’d, gotten the community ranting.
The police stated, that the officer, Weng started working in the force about a little over a year ago, back then, because Shih was too emotional, and as he’d subdued her, she’d still, cussed him out, and he’d, lost it, that was why he’d, kicked her, and afterwards, he’d known, that he’d, violated the procedures and, accepted the punishment handed down by the police department.
The Wanhwa Police held a press conference yesterday, stated that they will give Weng a written reprimand, and transfer him into the backup units; as for Song and Shi’s physically assaulting the officers after they got drunk, they will both be charged with obstruction of public order, and physical assault.
And so, it’s, not at all easy, to keep your cool, in situations like this, but, because of your status, as a cop, it’s vital, that you maintained your cool, and in this case, this officer didn’t, and, he got pulled off duty.
