Hold up: Hell hath no fury like a car clamped in Kepong

Police are hunting down the rage filled woman who was the subject of a viral video clip that saw her threaten officials for having dared clamp her illegally parked vehicle.

The incident occurred in Kepong last week, with video emerging over the incident on Tuesday via social media showing an irate middle-aged woman yelling over her clamped Proton Saga. She had used bays intended for motorcycles to park her vehicle, along Jalan Metro Barat Perdana.

An officer from city hall (DBKL), along with the car park attendant attempted to explain that she would have to pay an RM80 (US$20) fine to unclamp her tire. She attempted to negotiate the cost down to RM50 (US$12.50); however, the offer was rejected, leading the woman’s demeanor to progress from irate to violent. She produced a menacing steering-wheel lock, and swung it at the two men.

Screaming that she would not only smash the DBKL vehicle on the scene, but “break the heads” of the two men as well.

She was silenced only after the DBKL officer produced handcuffs, suggesting that he did not welcome her rancorous behavior. Turning her attentions to the unarmed car park worker, she began swinging at his legs and arms. He did not sustain any serious injuries over the matter.

CityCarPark, the company that manages DBKL’s city parking, has confirmed the incident, but will not comment further at this time until all investigations are complete.

Police are now trying to track down the suspect, which should be very, very easy, considering you know her car plates.
