SINGAPORE - A network engineer who pushed and fought with a motorcyclist was jailed for a day and fined a total of $3,000 on Wednesday.

Nathan Adrian Tallack, 39, an Australian, admitted to using criminal force on Mr Lee Yao Rong Muhammad Saifuddin Ilyan Lee by pushing him and causing Lee and the machine to fall along Chai Chee Road.

He also pleaded guilty to disturbing the public peace by fighting with the 25-year-old driving instructor. A third charge of causing hurt was considered during his sentencing.

The court heard that Tallack was driving a car along Chai Chee Drive on April 1 this year when he was involved in a near-collision with Mr Lee, who was riding his motorcycle.
