Mediacorp television host Quan Yi Fong was charged in court on Wednesday with two counts of mischief and one count of using criminal force.

On 26 June 2010, the 37-year-old host got into an argument with a taxi driver after he refused to help her load her luggage into the boot of the taxi. The cab driver, Chan Swee Kong, 52, accused her of damaging his taxi when she kicked the right passenger door.

According to Asiaone, he claimed that she kicked him in the groin and locked herself in his taxi for 15 minutes to thrash the interior of his cab damaging the taxi fare meter and receipt printer.

The incident happened at about 8:40am along Upper East Coast Road junction with Bedok South Avenue 1.

Damages to the cab amounted $177.

Quan can be jailed for up to one year or fined for mischief or both. For pushing the taxi driver, she can be jailed for up to three months or fined up to $1,500 or both if convicted of using criminal force.
