A police chief's son wanted for knocking down and killing a Hebei University student while drink-driving more than a week ago has been arrested, Baoding police say. Li Qiming, the 22-year-old son of Li Gang, deputy director of a district police bureau in Baoding, was arrested by Wangdu county prosecutors after county police carried out an investigation, a spokesman announced on Sina's microblog service on Sunday night. Li Qiming had been detained since allegedly running over two women students while driving at 100km/h through the Hebei University campus late at night on October 16. Allegedly drunk, he then sped away. He showed no remorse when stopped by security guards and students. 'My father is Li Gang,' was his only reply, apparently thinking his father's status would protect him from prosecution. One of the women, 20-year-old Chen Xiaofeng , died later in hospital. University witnesses - mostly students - were reluctant to talk to the media after reportedly coming under pressure from university leaders and Li Gang. However, a university spokesman denied that any such pressure had been applied. Li Qiming's attitude infuriated internet users, making 'My father is Li Gang' a popular catchphrase, used in poems and videos. Details of properties owned by Li Gang and his son have been dug out and posted online by outraged internet users. Li Gang apologised in an interview with China Central Television last week, breaking down in tears several times, but internet users appeared to be unconvinced. University spokesman Wang Jingming dismissed online rumours that the other victim and Chen's roommates had been offered postgraduate places at the university in exchange for their silence. Net users exploded with rage over the alleged inhumanity and arrogance of Li Qiming, said Li Weining , a researcher at the Communication University of China in Beijing. Now there was a further element - allegations of the university president's plagiarism. Pseudo-science debunker Dr Fang Shimin, better known on the mainland as Fang Zhouzi , said on the New Threads website in March that the university's party secretary and president, Wang Hongrui, had plagiarised material for his two books and his PhD thesis. Wang asked Fang to remove the stories but Fang refused. Wang then invited Baoding police to dinner in April to ask them to find out who had told Fang about his alleged plagiarism, the Chengdu Business Daily reported. Wang has filed a case with local police, Wang Jingming said. 'The way an internet event develops is to follow a chain of topical issues,' Li Weining said. 'People's attention has shifted from the arrogance of the son, to the silence of the students, the father's apology and the president's plagiarism.' People's University sociology professor Zhou Xiaozheng said ordinary people held grudges over social inequity, mainly represented by a widening income gap and judicial injustice. The offspring of government officials were among the main beneficiaries of the two forms of unfairness, Zhou said. 'In this case, the internet is a channel to vent people's frustrations about social evils,' he said. 'But in some cases, they are not allowed to talk freely.'
