Muscat: One man was arrested after a video of him drifting and crashing his car into a pole was circulated on social media, the Royal Oman Police (ROP) announced.
In the video, the car is drifting at high speed, before crashing into a pole and coming to a stop. Onlookers are seen rushing to help the driver, with police authorities revealing that a few people even helped him escape.
In a statement online ROP said, "The police command of Al Batinah north governorate arrested the owner of the vehicle, [who was recorded] drifting. The video was circulated on social media and the driver escaped [from the scene] and hid his vehicle with the help of others.
