Police to summon shooting association in road rage case
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta Police will summon representatives of a shooting association after one of its members allegedly brandished a firearm on the inner-city toll road.
Police mobile investigation unit chief Comr. Malvino Edward Justica said Teza Irawan, a member of the Indonesian Shooting and Hunting Association (Perbakin), had been named a suspect after reportedly holding a revolver out of his car to scare other drivers on March 29, while he was driving on the inner-city toll road heading for Cawang in East Jakarta.
“We’ll question Perbakin on Monday,” said Malvino, as quoted by tempo.co on Thursday.
Malvino said Teza had been driving erratically and flashing his headlights when passing by the Dharmais General Hospital in West Jakarta. He then reportedly stopped and stuck what appeared to be a gun out of the window of his car to intimidate other drivers into letting him cut the line to the toll booth.
Highway patrol officers tailed the car until it stopped at the Kuningan toll gate and arrested Teza. They confiscated the vehicle along with its registration documents, an airsoft gun, two 3.8 mm bullets, six airsoft pellets and a holster. They also found a Perbakin membership card under the name of Teza. (vla)
