SINGAPORE: The police are investigating a 29-year-old for his suspected involvement in a case of rash act, after a man was seen in a viral video running into the path of a moving car and falling to the road even though he wasn't hit.

In a media release on Saturday (Oct 1), the Singapore Police Force (SPF) said it received a report from a woman who said that she was driving along Serangoon North Ave 5 on Monday when a man purportedly dashed out onto the road in front of her vehicle and fell even though there was no collision. 

She made a police report on Tuesday.

"Preliminary investigations revealed that the man did not suffer any injuries from the incident, did not ask the woman for any money, and had walked off after the incident," said SPF. 

"Police are investigating the man for rash act."

In dashcam video posted on the Facebook page of Beh Chia Lor - Singapore Road, a man is seen standing by the side of the road before dashing out as a car approaches. 

The driver brakes and the man fell to the road without being hit. He then moves around on the ground, before sitting up.

The driver can be heard saying: "What are you doing?"

Those convicted of rash act face a jail term of up to six months, a fine of up to S$2,500 or both. 

"The police have zero tolerance against acts that endanger the lives or safety of others and will not hesitate to take action against those who endanger public safety," said SPF.
