Police officer Chief Brig. Eka Setiawan had no choice but to remain stuck on the windshield of a car as the driver refused to be ticketed by the police and attempted to flee the scene.
The scene of the police officer holding on to the car was recorded and shared online by netizens, including by Instagram account @jktinfo, which reported a video recorded by user @imam_mirhan.
The caption reads “On Monday, a police officer was seen holding on to the windshield of a car in Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta.”
The incident started when Eka and several officers of the South Jakarta Transportation Agency raided an illegal parking area on Jl. Pasar Minggu Raya at around 2:30 p.m. on Monday.
Police and agency officers found a dark grey SUV parked on the side of the road and subsequently asked the vehicle’s driver, identified as Tavipuddin, for the documents of the car.
“However, the owner refused to co-operate and attempted to escape,” South Jakarta Traffic Police chief Comr. Lilik Sumardi said on Monday, Warta Kota reported.
