A High Court judge yesterday accused police of telling tales when they described how a speeding car rocketed towards them. 'The police at least exaggerated the speed of the car and the distance,' judge Wally Yeung Chun-kuen said. 'Especially the claim that, within the distance of six metres, the car had gathered a speed of 30 km/h. This is impossible.' The driver, Ng Wai-shun, 24, was said to have hurtled towards the two police constables at 30 to 40 km/h. Police claimed he deliberately swerved towards them to frighten them after he was told to leave an illegal parking lot on Caroline Hill Road in April last year. But the High Court judge pointed out that the driver had returned to the scene of the crime shortly afterwards, and was arrested by the two policemen. Mr Justice Yeung said that if Mr Ng believed he had committed a crime, he would not have gone back. Last October, Mr Ng was found guilty of careless driving. Eastern Court magistrate Bill Siu fined him $1,000 and ordered that he pay $1,500 court costs. The charge was yesterday quashed in the High Court.
