Quan Yifeng in 6-hour 'talk' to police

Well, I know Quan Yifeng is a fantastic TV host & currently featured in the New City Beat (No, no...that doesn't cover Taxi-driver Beat!). She speaks well. Hey, she even won an award for Best Variety Show Host during this year Star Awards. But to read how she 'spoke to police' for 6 hours with regards to the alleged her role in a taxi rage?! Some people will point out that it sounds more like an interrogation. I don't know if that's the case. Still, 6 hours??? For making her statement???

Quan Yifeng once quoted to say that she 'hopes to bring the truth to light'. Never imagine, though, that the process will take that long--no kidding, 6 hours???

MEDIACORP host Quan Yifeng spoke to police for 6 hours on Friday over her alleged 'act of aggression' with a ComfortDelGro taxi driver.

Ms Quan was seen arriving at Bedok Police Division Headquarters at 3.45pm, several days after she made headlines for a dispute with the driver, identified only as Mr Chan.

She left close to 10pm, and declined to say why she had spent so long in the police station making her statement. Ms Quan, 35, has hired criminal lawyer Subhas Anandan to represent her.

In a statement on Tuesday, ComfortDelGro said Mr Chan was physically attacked by the television host. According to the statement, the fare meter was ripped out during the altercation,

In a Wanbao report, Mr Chan was quoted as saying that the star lost her temper after he did not help her load her luggage into his taxi and asked 'what sort of service attitude is this?'. He claimed Ms Quan also swore at him in Hokkien, kicked him in the groin and locked herself in the taxi for 15 minutes.

Ms Quan denied his allegations and hit back by saying that he was rude, drove recklessly. She also claimed that Mr Chan slammed the taxi door on her, hitting her on the back and leg.

Police said they are investigating the incident.

From Straits Times, "Quan speaks to police".
