Cancun combi driver arrested after assaulting transit officer

Cancun, Q. R. — A public transport driver in Cancun was arrested after physically assaulting a traffic agent. The combi driver was being questioned by the transit officer after he suspected him of driving his public transport van intoxicated.

When the officer told the man he was going to be arrested for alleged drunk driving, the combi driver got out of his unit and physically attacked the officer. Several other transit officers were quick to the scene where they helped break up, what turned into, a public street brawl.

The driver of the combi unit was officially arrested and transferred to the municipal retention center from where he will face charges. The transit officer was taken to hospital for face injuries sustained after being hit with his own helmet as well as slapped and punched by the combi driver.

Last week, two Cancun taxi drivers were videoed fighting outside the Cancun International Airport. The fight was reportedly over a lost fare.
