Rude Biker Gets A Lesson In Manners From Victim He Ran Over

Rude Biker Gets A Lesson In Manners From Victim He Ran Over

A rude moped rider who didn't apologise to a man he ran over on a street in China is licking his wounds in hospital after his victim taught him a lesson in manners, with his fists.

Kuan-Yin Yang, 23, was bowled over by rider Jin Hou, 41, as he strolled along in Wuhan City in central China's Hubei province with his girlfriend Yan Yan Yen, 22, on his arm.

As he lay stunned but otherwise unharmed after the encounter with the electric bike he looked up at Hou and said: "Don't you think it would be nice to say sorry?"

When he laughed in his face Yang lost it and attacked him with his fists and feet.

"I was so angry," he said. "First he knocks me down, then he laughs at me and finally he just busied himself picking up the packages that he had dropped when he ran into me.

"I decided to teach him a lesson he wouldn't forget in a hurry. My family raised me and my brothers to have respect for others and to admit when we had made mistakes.

"I attend martial arts classes so it was no big deal to chop him down to size. My girlfriend pulled me off in the end, but not before I gave him a bloody nose and a lesson he won't forget in a hurry."

The injured man needed treatment at a local hospital for cuts and bruises but he was not kept in overnight. He refused to talk about the incident and police have not received a complaint.
