SINGAPORE - A former Trans-Cab driver, who was allegedly caught in two videos last month, including one of road rage, was charged in court with assault on Thursday (Dec 5).

Singaporean Feng Zhanning, 42, was also charged with one count of criminal intimidation.

Trans-Cab terminated his contract last month.

In a police statement on Thursday morning, Feng allegedly confronted the driver of a car in Paterson Hill at around 3.20pm on Nov 22 after the motorist sounded his car horn.

Feng is then said to have rained blows on the car during the confrontation and damaged the vehicle.

The police added that the other motorist was not hurt in the incident.

Feng was allegedly involved in another dispute two days later at Far East Plaza.

The former cabby is said to have committed criminal intimidation by swinging a pair of pliers towards one of his passengers, identified as Mr Benedict Gerard Conceicao, at the taxi stand of the Scotts Road shopping centre at around 10pm on Nov 24.

According to the police, Mr Conceicao was then carrying a five-month-old baby who was not hurt in the incident.

Feng is also accused of hurting Ms Susanna Soon Ee Wei by pushing her at the taxi stand.

Court documents state that she fell backwards and suffered abrasions to her right palm.

Police arrested Feng at the Woodlands Checkpoint on Wednesday.

The court heard on Thursday that he will be remanded at the Institute of Mental Health for a psychiatric observation and the case has been adjourned to Dec 19.

If convicted of assault, he can be jailed for up to two years and fined up to $5,000.
