1 year in custody for road rage teen

(Shanghai Daily)

08:46, September 16, 2011

Li Tianyi, son of renowned Chinese military singer Li Shuangjiang, has been sent to a government correctional facility for a one-year confinement for assaulting a couple in a road rage incident.

Li Tianyi, 15, was charged with causing a disturbance, the Beijing Public Security Bureau said yesterday.

Police have also applied for an arrest warrant for Su Nan, 18, on the same charge.

Li Tianyi and Su had been under police detention since they quarreled with the couple and injured them on September 6.

The incident aroused public anger as Li Tianyi was reported to have shouted: "Who dare to call the police?"

The two teenagers, whose cars were forced to stop as the couple's car slowed to turn into a complex, got out and beat them. The husband had to have 11 stitches in a head wound and his wife's forehead was injured.

Media reports said that Li Tianyi's souped-up BMW had 32 unpaid tickets for speeding or other careless driving offenses but Beijing police said yesterday that he had paid all the fines.

Su had earlier claimed he was a relative of a police chief in Shanxi Province, but later admitted he lied. Beijing police said Su's father, Su Wenbin, former chairman of an auto sales company in Shanxi, had been detained for forging a car plate. Police said earlier that the plate on the Audi Su Nan was driving during the incident was fake.

In an apology, the singer, a major general, told the couple: "I didn't give him a good upbringing. I feel sorry. I'd rather you hit me."

Any man that hits a women is a coward. Send these boys my way. I will educate them on how to be a gentleman. I also blaim the parents. 15 and driving BMWs. Obviously the parent was spoiling the child. Probably another corrupt general.
