Norwegian Jailed 10 Weeks For Assaulting Taxi Driver

A man was jailed 10 weeks for assaulting a cabby on Sept 22, last year.

Arne Corneliussen, 50, a programme management director of a courier company, had pleaded guilty to one count of voluntarily causing hurt to Mr Chan Chuan Heng, 46.

The taxi driver suffered a fractured left foot following the attack at the intersection of Circular and North Canal roads.

Corneliussen, a Norwegian national, had Mr Chan in a chokehold for 15 seconds before witnesses pulled him away.

Mr Chan was unable to work for five months and only resumed driving his taxi in February.
