A road-raging duo who made fools of themselves and spawned many memes have been arrested.

The Singaporean man and woman who vented their fury by ripping the license plate from a minivan and childishly flipping the driver off were arrested yesterday by Malaysian police. Their names were not disclosed.

“Both suspects admitted to being involved in the arrested case. The suspect is believed to be unhappy because her vehicle was blocked and scraped against during the incident,” Iskandar Puteri Johor District police chief Rahmat Bin Ariffin said in a statement.

The Saturday incident happened at the Tuas Second Link bridge which connects Singapore to Johor. It was packed with cars lined up to pass the immigration checkpoint in Malaysia when suddenly a woman was spotted leaning against a Toyota Alphard to prevent it from moving. She then ripped off its license plate and smashed it against the car’s windshield.

The Alphard had allegedly collided with the woman’s red Kia when it attempted to change lanes.

The viral incident continued when a man, believed to be her son, ran over and gave the Alphard’s driver the middle finger before hurrying back into their car. The Alphard’s driver then got out to retrieve the car’s license plate from the road.

Other videos from different angles showed her taunting the driver by blocking the car and smirking.

On Singapore’s end, the Singapore Police Force said a report has been lodged over the alleged doxxing of the woman and her family.
