 VietNamNet Bridge – Hanoi traffic police have found the man who was captured driving a motorbike by one foot while texting on his cell phone in a photo which appeared on the Internet recently.

The man is Nguyen Dinh Chung, 22, from Hoai Duc district, Hanoi. The vehicle he drove in the clip is a stolen motorbike of a woman in Hanoi.

Lieutenant Colonel Hoang Van Dao, chief of the Hanoi Traffic Police Group 11 said that initially Chung did not admit that he used his foot to drive the motorbike while texting on his mobile phone until we showed him the evidence.

The official said Chung seriously broke the traffic law so the total fine imposed on him was up to VND12 million ($600).

Chung could not show documents proving his ownership over the motorbike in the clip. Police detected that the vehicle was the motorbike of a Hanoi’s woman which was stolen in 2010.
