The Dubai Police have referred the Arab man - who works in a hotel - to the public prosecution for endangering his life and that of others. Al Qasim pointed out that the charges might go beyond hampering traffic and amount to misdemeanour or felony, according to law.
He said the valet claimed he blocked the woman's path after she  gave him a wrong ticket to avoid paying parking fees. However, the woman insisted she had given him the correct parking ticket for her car.
In the footage, the man can be seen sitting on a Kia Picanto car's bonnet at the traffic signal. The woman drives her car, despite the man being on it. She swerves her car to the right. He falls on the ground several times, but doesn't give up. The man stands up every time he is forced to get off and sits on the bonnet, preventing her way. The woman finally speeds away.
The Dubai Police warned public against taking videos or photographs of members of the community in various situations, such as accidents or crimes, and posting them on social media without referring them to the competent authorities. The police stressed that this is violation of privacy and carries legal accountability as per the information technology law.
