An engineer was fined $5,000 on Thursday for punching and slamming a teenager's head against the steering wheel of a racing game machine.

Lau Teck Guan, 34, had admitted to causing hurt to the 15-year-old student at TKA Virtualand Arcade at Parco Bugis Junction at Victoria Street on May 26, 2011.

The court heard that at about 9pm that day, the victim's friend, then 16, was playing the racing game with Lau.

When his friend lost a game, the victim decided to take over the steering wheel. The victim then won subsequent games against Lau.
