Dear A.S.S. Editor
The couple who was caught on video berating an elderly man over a table at a Toa Payoh hawker centre were fined on Friday. The video had went viral, earning the couple widespread criticism on the social media.
Tutor Tay Puay Leng, also known as Zheng Peiling, 38, was fined $1,200 for using abusive words on Mr Ng Ai Hua, alias Ivor Ng, 76, with the intent to cause alarm. Tay’s partner, tuition centre director Chow Chuin Yee, 45, was fined $1,500 for using criminal force on Mr Ng by using his body to forcefully barge into him in the back.
The video had showed Tay shouting at Mr Ng at the Lorong 8 Toa Payoh hawker centre on April 21. Shortly afterwards, Chow was seen shoving Mr Ng from behind. Police subsequently arrested the couple two days after the incident.
