Is this the most expensive incident of road rage ever? I’m not sure I can disagree after watching the footage.
A man has been arrested in Doha, Qatar, after ploughing a white Mercedes Benz into a Rolls Royce and other vehicles parked outside the Sheraton Hotel’s reception. After driving doughnuts around the entrance to the hotel, the driver smashed the Mercedes 4×4 into the side of a very expensive Rolls Royce to the shock of everyone at the scene.
Sheraton Hotel told WGO Qatar: “We can confirm that the individual was not a guest of the hotel and no injuries occurred to any guests or associates.
“The individual was escorted off the local premises by local authorities.”
The Qatari Ministry of the Interior confirmed on Facebook that the driver has been arrested for damaging property. Ironically, two other people have been arrested for videoing the incident and sharing it on social media. Bizarre in this country maybe, but in Qatar it’s currently illegal to spread ‘news, photographs or comments related to a person’s private life, or that of his family’.
If you can get arrested for sharing a simple video, imagine the punishment the driver will get!
