A glass panel worker who fought with a man on an MRT train earlier this year was fined $1,500 on Wednesday for disturbing public peace.

Teeng Kok Yong, 40, admitted to a charge of affray by kicking odd-job worker Ng Cheng Kiat, 50, twice on his leg, on Jan 11.

Ng, who is married with three children, was earlier fined $2,500 for grabbing and punching Teeng in the face.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Justin Seng said Ng and his girlfriend boarded the south-bound train at Khatib MRT station at about 11.35pm that day and sat across from Teeng. Teeng was playing a game on his cellphone and moving his tongue around. He had a metal stud on his tongue.
