A traffic inspector from the Tucuman capital knocked out a taxi driver with a punch. The agent’s violent reaction was recorded by a passerby who shared the images with The Gazette.
According to the account of the Undersecretary of Traffic of San Miguel de Tucumán, Enrique Romero, moments before the beating, the taxi driver would have committed an infraction, for which the agent asked him to take the vehicle to the municipal corral.
“The taxi was parked on Marco Paz and Laprida, in a prohibited area. When the inspector asks for documentation, he gives him the card, the green card, but he did not have the health card. Therefore, the inspector tells him that he has to take the taxi to the corralón, ”explains Romero.
On the way to their destination, they stop at the traffic light, where “the taxi driver gets out of the vehicle, pulls the inspector off the motorcycle and snatches the documentation from him.”

At that moment, the inspector reacts with a punch that leaves the driver on the floor. “I shouldn’t have done it. The act of violence is not justified, beyond the fact that the inspector fell and hit himself,” says the Undersecretary of Traffic.
For this reason, the taxi owner was summoned to the public department, according to Romero. He also informed that the municipal agent, who would be a professional boxer, was initiated a summary.
