Su was orig­i­nally stopped by po­lice when he was caught driv­ing his ve­hi­cle, which was dented, down a street in the wrong di­rec­tion. He was then de­tained for the first time after fail­ing to present his driver’s li­cense to po­lice. Su went home to col­lect his spare key and re­turned to his car, driv­ing off in the ve­hi­cle, but was again de­tained after po­lice launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
