A freelance dance instructor was sentenced to two weeks' jail on Wednesday for forcefully grabbing the arm of a woman taxi passenger.

Felix Huang Sze Thian, 31, who pleaded guilty to using criminal force, was driving a car past Sim Lim Square in Rochor when he overtook a taxi and moved into his lane at a speed of about 20kmh on Sept 27 last year.

Cabby Ismail Kassim Bharoocha, 65, who was ferrying Ms Caroline Constance Lim, 46, flashed his headlights and sounded his taxi horn at Huang.

Suddenly, the car jerked to a stop infront of the cab, forcing the driver to jam abruptly.
