Briton Alex Arrash Ariana, 34, was drunk when he assaulted the officer outside the nightclub at Clarke Quay. The Briton frequently travels to Singapore for work, and he was here on a wrok assignment when the assault occurred.
The altercation started when the drunk man had an argument with the security manager of the club. The team of police officers had approached him to tell him to relax, but he started to behave aggressively towards the officer. The officers then proceeded to arrest him after he started being rowdy, but that was when he struck Chen.
