Reckless driver bumps into traffic police chief

KUWAIT: A man thought he was lucky when he drove for nearly two kilometers along a road’s shoulder without a police vehicle in sight, till his luck ran out and he found himself face to face with none other than Kuwait’s traffic police chief. Traffic General Department Director Abdulfattah Al-Ali was driving his civil car off duty when he noticed a reckless driver driving in at a speed far higher than the permissible limit along the road shoulder to avoid becoming stuck in a traffic jam. He intercepted the driver at a point where he tried to come on to the main road. After realizing that he was in serious trouble, the man tried explaining to the Major General that he had a family emergency. Maj Gen Al-Ali turned a deaf ear to his pleadings, however, and ordered that his vehicle be impounded.

Search for thief Fahaheel police were looking into a case in which a man claimed he was robbed at knifepoint by a man to whom he had sold his cell phone only a few minutes earlier. In his statements to local police, the Kuwaiti man explained that he met a person at a local mall who agreed to buy his custom-made Blackberry for KD400. After the sale was completed, the man made his way out of the mall only for the buyer to take out a knife, snatch the money he just paid and escape. Investigations were on.
