Lingerie model Tran Thi Ngoc Trinh, known across Vietnam as Ngoc Trinh, rode a large-displacement motorcycle while performing offensive and dangerous acts and wearing no protective gear before posting videos of the stunt on the Internet, stirring outrage among social media users.

Police in Ho Chi Minh City on Thursday detained Ngoc Trinh, 34, and filed charges against her for allegedly causing social disorder.

Police forces also launched legal proceedings against Tran Xuan Dong, Trinh’s 36-year-old trainer, for using counterfeit documents and causing social disorder.

Ngoc Trinh, dubbed an ‘underwear queen,’ is accused of driving recklessly in Thu Duc City under Ho Chi Minh City, and then posting videos of herself kneeling and lying on a large displacement motorcycle to her social network channels, said the city’s investigators.

These videos quickly went viral.

Ngoc Trinh was found to have no special license that would allow her to legally ride a motorcycle with an engine over 175cc.

On October 6, she and Dong rode a motorcycle with a cylinder capacity of 999cc on D15 Road in the Saigon Hi-Tech Park in Thu Duc City.

In early September, both rode motorcycles on Tran Bach Dang Street in the Thu Thiem urban area in the city.

While riding her motorcycle, Ngoc Trinh put both legs to one side of the vehicle, knelt on the saddle, and let go of both hands.

Her behaviors were determined to have caused social disorder and negatively affect traffic safety in Thu Thiem Ward, Thu Duc City.

Besides, her dispersion of many videos showing risky and offensive acts has affected social order and safety, and potentially deformed young people’s thinking, lifestyle and behaviors, while her social media accounts attract millions of followers.

The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Information and Communications as well as the city’s cybersecurity and hi-tech crime prevention division sent the documents of the case to the municipal Investigative Police Agency for further investigation and punishment.

After the city’s investigators started verifying the number plate of a motorcycle that both previously rode, Dong showed fake vehicle registration documents.

Dong confessed that he had known about the counterfeit paperwork, but he still bought the motorcycle because it was being sold for a good price.

Police officers are expanding their investigation into the case.

Ngoc Trinh, whose hometown is Tra Vinh Province in the Mekong Delta region, is infamous for her sensual fashion style.

She started her fashion career when she was 16, and then competed in a model contest.

She has some six million followers on her verified Facebook account.
