Bus driver tried to hide from cops

Hiding /Quirky China News

A bus driver has been arrested after he jumped out of his cab and hid under his vehicle when police officers tried to give him a ticket.

The man had been pulled over for driving through a red light and jumping lanes in Zhongshan, southern China's Guangdong Province.

But when officers demanded to see his driving licence, he leapt past them and slid under the chassis, refusing to come out.

Police called out the fire brigade who started to tow away the bus - but the driver crawled along underneath the vehicle.

As congestion built up in surrounding streets, police and fire officers tried to persuade the man to come out but to no avail.

Eventually they lost patience and pulled him out. The bus driver is now in police custody and his vehicle is off the road.
