Hanoi police have announced they had charged a model and actress for her actions against law enforcement officers.
Hoan Kiem District police said on Tuesday that they have indicted Trang Tran for insulting and attacking police officers on February 26.
Trang Tran, 30, whose real name is Tran Thi Trang, was arrested on the evening of February 27 and temporarily detained for investigation into her offense.
Trang and her friends were in a taxi driving in the wrong direction on Dao Duy Tu Street in the capital one day earlier.
When the cab was stopped by police officers, the Vietnamese model began reacting negatively.
She stepped out of the car and had an uncooperative attitude, which quickly escalated into contemptuous insults and even an attack on the police officers.
The model also threw foul language at the current regime.
Trang was then taken to the police station for her abusive behavior and actions against law enforcement officers, where she also called other police officers names.
The investigative police confirmed Trang was under the influence when she adopted such abusive language and destructive acts.
The police later set her free on bail as she showed remorse and has good identity records.
Trang has won several prizes in the local modeling industry and appeared in large fashion events.
She recently tried her hand at cinema and theater and played a wanted criminal in “Huong Ga,” one of last year’s local blockbusters.
