Christmas Eve celebrations turned ugly at the famous Teluk Chempedak beach in Kuantan, Pahang, when a group of revellers attacked a Malaysian police patrol car with stones and mineral bottles, and sprayed foam.
Police detained three youths, believed to be drunk, for damaging cars belonging to the public and the police patrol car, the New Straits Times reported.
The incident late on Tuesday night unfolded when the trio, aged between 16 and 23, along with several others, began disturbing motorists passing through the stretch near the beach by spraying foam. When a police patrol car arrived at the scene, the three suspects began to spray foam and pelt it with stones and mineral water bottles.
Police called for backup and another patrol vehicle arrived to arrest the youths.
Kuantan deputy police chief Superintendent Aziz Ahmad said the trio had also kicked the patrol car, which resulted in several dents on the car.
The trio also allegedly threw hard objects, which resulted in a cracked windshield and tail light.
He said more arrests may follow.
The suspects had no past criminal record and had been remanded.
