He complained to the police and the people of the Recruit Training Centre, and said that he was just following Google Maps, to take him back to his house and the route made him drive through barricades. He did not realise that the area restricted for the general public to drive through.

Mr. Thomas then stopped and asked a constable of police who was stationed there if the road goes on, to which the constable said that it does not.

Hearing that, he began to turn his car around to go back to where he came from, but the police man stopped the car and told him to get out. He went on to say that after he got off his car, the police man started using abusive language at him and even asked where he learnt to drive a car. He also said that the police man got angry with him as he dirtied the road with his mud filled tyres.
