A video of an expat who allegedly drove his car under the influence on Jalan Thamrin-Hassanudin, Denpasar went viral on social media and received negative reactions from the Bali community. The incident that occurred on Sunday morning around 9:30 am was recorded by some locals as they attempted to stop the man from driving his car uncontrollably.

In the video, the man who drove a Nissan Juke was ignoring the people who were attempting to stop him. Apart from that, he also drove into a motorbike that was driven by a local as he began to get frustrated. Several people even attempted to hit his door and shout at him but he just kept on driving the car until he got to Jalan Diponegoro, Denpasar.
