PETALING JAYA – A motorist was arrested after she shouted at police officers manning a roadblock here.

The woman was one of hundreds of motorists who were caught by surprise after the police set up a new roadblock along Persiaran Surian to enforce the movement control order (MCO).

It was set up as many people were still driving out far from their homes to buy necessities, said Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal.

“We found that there were some people who lived in Kota Damansara but wanted to shop at the Taman Megah market.

“Just buy your necessities in your area. We will not accept any reasons unless all the shops in your neighbourhood are closed, ” he told reporters yesterday.

Police arrested a 44-year-old woman after she shouted expletives at them when passing through the roadblock.

“We arrested her and brought her back to the Petaling Jaya police headquarters for further investigation.

“She called us idiots. Well, we are idiots who have your safety in our hearts and minds, ” said ACP Nik Ezanee.
