‘DATUK’ FROM PAHANG TELLS COPS: ‘I’M HIGH ON DRUGS’

KUALA LUMPUR – A man who claimed to be a datuk got himself in trouble after he told police officers that he was high on drugs.

City traffic deputy chief Supt Ahmad Adnan Basri said that the suspect, who was driving a car, was stopped during a traffic operation in the city at about 11pm on Friday.

“He created a ruckus, questioning why he was stopped and claimed to have a datukship from Pahang,” said Supt Ahmad.

The police did not find any contraband on the man but noticed that he seemed to be in a daze.

“He admitted to have taken an illegal substance. A urine test conducted on him at the Dang Wangi police headquarters was positive for metamphetamine,” he said.

Supt Ahmad added that further checks showed that the suspect’s claim of being a datuk was false.
