A foreign student recently got himself into trouble for pushing a traffic police officer on the street in Fuzhou, Fujian province. 

After he was caught by traffic police driving with another person on an electric scooter in downtown Fuzhou, which is against local traffic rules, the foreign student refused to cooperate and started a physical conflict with the law enforcement officer, Beijing News reported. 

According to the report, the foreign student is currently studying at the International College of Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University. In light of the event, the student, identified as Younes who hails from Egypt, was given an in-school suspension, according to a notice published on the university’s website on July 12. 

The scene was filmed by onlookers and uploaded to the internet. According to one eyewitness, the incident happened at around 6.40pm on July 9 and “the traffic police officer did not use force or verbally abuse the man, but the laowai was fierce nonetheless.” In the video, the traffic police officer can be seen running away from the student after being repeatedly shoved.
