The Honda Civic driver branded a "road bully" by netizens because of two online videos showing him tailgating, overtaking and braking recklessly has been arrested.

In response to media queries, police confirmed that a 24-year-old man has been arrested and investigations are ongoing.

The Straits Times understands that Mr Quek Zhen Hao, a 24-year-old undergraduate, was arrested on Feb 11 for committing a rash act.

He has been the focus of heated criticism since early February, with netizens calling him "public enemy", "ugly" and an "Ah Beng", and taking justice into their own hands by digging up his personal information to circulate online. This drove Mr Quek to post up a video of himself apologising, and lamenting how he, in turn, had become the focus of "cyber Ah Bengs".
