This happened pretty much just down the road from me, which – as any George Carlin fan will know – suddenly makes it a million times more interesting.
So here’s the quick version – an Audi owner gets into an argument on the street with a female parking attendant/meter maid about a parking fine he’d incurred. He got in the car and tried to drive away before the attendant could write him up, so she stood in front of the car in order to stop him from driving away. At this point Mr. Audi decides to accelerate and run her over, knocking her over and dragging her under the car. She died a little later in hospital.
All this over a 15RMB parking fine? That’s messed up.
In a city with very little violent crime – the streets are very safe after dark for a big city, the worst you get is pickpockets in crowded areas – this is a fairly big deal here.
Hopefully Audi douche – who was arrested by the police soon after running the meter maid over – gets what he deserves.
