DUBAI – A 25-year-old Pakistani man will be spending one year in jail for ramming a police patrol car in Dubai and attempting to run over a police officer.
The man was found guilty of assault and causing life endangerment and damage to property during the March 3 incident in International City.
The court, in its recent ruling, ordered the man’s deportation after he serves his sentence.
According to records, policemen spotted the Pakistani man getting into a Honda Civic at a parking area in a residential building in the community. The car had been reported stolen.
Two police officers tried to stop him, but the man resisted arrest and repeatedly rammed their police patrol car as he tried to escape.
One of the officers who tried to approach the driver told the court that the Pakistani man “didn’t stop ramming the patrol [with his vehicle] and almost ran me over in the process”.
The officer said he was thrown into the air and was injured, but managed to run back to the stolen car and pull the man out of the vehicle to arrest him. ICA/Expat Media
