Police in Thanh Hoa Province, north-central Vietnam have arrested a woman for swearing at a team of traffic police officers and preventing them from performing their duty.

Police in Ba Thuoc District confirmed on Wednesday they had initiated legal proceedings against Nguyen Thi Ngan, 44, for charges of obstructing on-duty officers.

Ngan was also taken into custody to facilitate the investigation.

Preliminary information showed that a team of six traffic police officers was patrolling along a street in Canh Nang Town, Ba Thuoc District on the morning of February 16.

At around 11:20 am, the officers pulled over Nguyen Thi Ngoc Lan, 25, and booked her for failure to wear a crash helmet while riding a motorbike.

During the process, Ngan, who is Lan’s mother-in-law and lives in the neighborhood, arrived at the location and asked the officers to let her daughter-in-law go.

After the officers refused, Ngan snatched their documents and threw them away and began swearing at them.

After being handcuffed, Ngan continued swearing at the officers and used her upper body to push them.

The traffic policemen later booked Ngan for obstructing on-duty officers and handed over the case to the district police unit.
