BEIJING — A Chinese woman tussled with police officers and security guards at a subway station after refusing to put her handbag through a scanner. She was given five days’ detention for her behaviour, local media reported.
The incident, which was caught on surveillance cameras, happened on February 27 at Sanjiaohu station in Wuhan, capital of central China’s Hubei province, Kankanews.com reported on Monday.
According to report, the woman wrestled with police and security guards, and even pretended a blackout rather than comply with routine safety check
In the footage, the woman, identified only by her surname Wei, can be seen walking up to a checkpoint carrying a bag. The action then cuts to a scene in which she appears to be surrounded by security guards.
The incident, which came to light on February 27, took place at Sanjiaohu station in Wuhan, capital of central China’s Hubei province, and was caught on surveillance cameras, Kankanews.com reported.
The footage showed a woman, walking up to a checkpoint carrying a bag. The action then cuts to a scene in which she appears to be surrounded by security guards.
According to reports, the staff at the station told the passenger that she could not go through the security check without allowing her bag to be scanned. The woman apparently replied by saying that she did not want to put the expensive item on a dirty conveyor belt. The dispute then escalated from there.
The subway workers contacted the police and several officers arrived on the scene.
The woman, reportedly, refused to comply with their requests, after which the argument descended into pushing and shoving.
At one point in the video, the woman can be seen feigning a blackout, as her legs crumple and she slumps to the floor.
When it becomes evident the woman is not going to give in, police officers drag her away from the scene.
This is not the first time that a Chinese commuter had got into a fix over a handbag.
In early February, a woman travelling home for the holiday became an internet sensation after a video and X-ray images of her crawling through a security scanner at Dongguan railway station in southern China’s Guangdong province went viral.
She said later that the bag contained a lot of money and she did not want to let it out of her sight.

The doctors said the man came to the Hai Duong Hospital complaining of ear pain and a look inside his ear canal with an endoscope revealed the cause was a live cricket.
The footage shows the cricket digging around inside the man’s ear canal.
Doctors have successfully removed the cricket, and he is now recovering.
