Merge 104.8  |  23 March 2020

A man has been caught after a video of him drifting his SUV on a beach in Muscat went viral.

Wearing a face mask to protect his identity – and possibly as protection from the Coronavirus – he was filmed in full violation of the Supreme Committee’s rule to stay clear of public areas and public gatherings.

The video of him drifting – complete with a clear view of his number plate – went viral on social media platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp.  

The Royal Oman Police (ROP) in the Governorate of Muscat have reportedly arrested the man and are completing legal procedures against him.
