This viral video seen over a million times shows a woman repeatedly shoving a traffic cop in the chest before he slams her to the ground in a flash and he reportedly arrested her.

According to police in the city of Chengdu, capital of Sichuan Province in south-western China, the unnamed woman was flagged down after the authorities reportedly spotted her driving without a seat belt.

The officers handed her a minor 50-RMB (5-GBP) fine for the offence, but the driver is said to have refused the punishment and then began arguing with the police.

In the video, the group of officers can be seen standing near the woman as she pushes the cop filming the incident.

She then turns to his colleague and repeatedly pushes him in the chest. The policeman walks backwards to avoid coming in contact with the woman, but she follows him and shouts in his face.

Following repeated warnings, the woman is finally restrained by the officer who wraps one arm around her neck and then trips her with his leg.

The video shows the cop throwing the woman to the ground and pinning her there with the split-second manoeuvre.

Chengdu police said the woman was given five days’ detention for obstructing justice.
