Call me Baby: ‘Pak Cik’ fined MYR300 for tantrum at restaurant

BERNAMA – A restaurant customer who went berserk when a waiter refused to call him “abang” or “baby” was fined MYR300 by the Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday for causing public nuisance.

Magistrate Mohamad Redza Azhar Rezali meted out the fine, in default seven days in jail, on Mohd Asri Abdullah, 50, who pleaded guilty to the charge.

The man, who is homeless, was charged under Section 268 of the Penal Code with causing a public nuisance at a restaurant in Putra Heights, Subang Jaya, at 9am on June 4.

Based on the facts of the case, Mohd Asri went berserk and began throwing a packet of “nasi lemak” and hot Nescafe, which splashed on the restaurant owner’s four-year-old son.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Nurul Farah Sofea Norazman prosecuted, while Mohd Asri was unrepresented.
