Two motorcyclists were arrested on Monday for throwing bricks at police in Da Nang after the officers had warned them against their driving offenses.

The incident took place just around midnight, when the two men traveling on one motorbike were pulled over by flying squad officers on duty at a checkpoint at the intersection of Ham Nghi with To Ngoc Van Streets in Thanh Khe District, according to the municipal police department.

Law enforcement then found both of them to be drunk and neither carried a driver's license. Their motorbike also lacked the mandatory rear-view mirrors.

The officers eventually allowed the men to go without giving them any penalties. However, the two shortly returned with bricks they had found somewhere.

The driver held a brick while the man riding pillion carried two, the police said.

The rear rider threw one of the two bricks at the on-duty officers, before the driver sped up to flee.

The motorbike then crashed into a police car moving in the opposite direction, prompting both men to abandon their vehicle.

But even when the men were fleeing the scene on foot, one of them still managed to hit the chasing officers with the remaining brick in his hand.

The police were able to dodge the objects, according to news website VnExpress.

The two motorcyclists were shortly subdued and taken to a police station, where they confessed to deliberately launching the physical attack at law enforcement.

They were identified as Trinh Cong Thuc and Nguyen Sy Hung, both 22, and neither of them is a permanent Da Nang resident.

Police in Thanh Khe District are handling the case.
