A video of a pedestrian in Chengdu kicking a traffic officer with such force that the policeman falls over has been circulating among the Internet.
The incident happened early Tuesday morning after the pedestrian, an 18-year-old man, was told by the traffic officer to stop at a red light.
The man, allegedly angered by the police officer's reprimand, ran up behind the office and kicked him the back, sending the latter into the air.
He then attempted to run off.
The man has been detained for 10 days.
