Chapter 287 – I am arresting you!
Night. 11 pm.
A Mercedes Benz MPV came to a screeching stop in front of a hotel, attracting the stares of many passersby. Dong Xuebing alighted and walked towards the hotel lobby with big strides. He is thinking about his mother in the E.R., Xiang Daofa’s suppression, Meng Xianglin’s sickening face, and the arrogance of those Japanese. He can no longer suppress his anger and is about to settle the score with them!
“Chief Dong! We are ready.”
“Chief Dong, we will listen to your orders.”
The few officers had been waiting outside the hotel and came over when they saw Dong Xuebing’s car.
Dong Xuebing looks at the officers. There were four of them, and some of them are from the Traffic Department, and some are from the Public Security section. Although Dong Xuebing cannot remember their names, two of them had helped him during the landslide. He said with knitted brows. “This mission is not ordered by the Bureau or the County. This is my personal decision, and I will take full responsibility for everything. What happened afterward have nothing to do with you all.”
“Chief Dong, how can you say this?”
“That’s right. We are not afraid of troubles!”
Dong Xuebing waved his hand. “Enough. Let’s go!”
Many leaders in the County do not like Dong Xuebing because of his foul temper and impulsive nature. No one knows what he will do next, but all of Dong Xuebing’s subordinates respected him. Dong Xuebing took care of his men and would even take on more responsibility to protect them. That’s why when the County Government and Public Security ordered to stop investigation against the Japanese site visit team, some officers are still waiting for Dong Xuebing’s orders.
The hotel’s lobby.
The two staff at the front desk were surprised to see the group of men entering the hotel.
Dong Xuebing walked up to the hotel staff and threw his work pass on the counter. “Public Security. Which room is Zhang Zhifeng in?”
The staff looks at the Police logo on the work pass and quickly checked their records. “He is in room 3015.”
“Ok. Take the keys for room 3015 and follow me.” Dong Xuebing said.
“I’m sorry.” The female staff hesitated. “I need to inform my manager…”
Dong Xuebing interrupted. “I will repeat one more time. Bring the keys for room 3015 and follow me!”
The staff looked at her colleague and entered the lift with the room’s card key. Ding! The lift’s door opens, and the staff brought Dong Xuebing and the officers through the corridors. She stopped in front of room 3015 and opened the door after some hesitations.
The door is unlocked.
Dong Xuebing waved to the female staff to stand back, and two officers rushed into the room.
“Who is it?!” Someone shouted in the room.
Dong Xuebing entered the room and switched on the lights. Zhang Zhifeng was still in his bed and had sat up in shock.
One officer asked coldly. “Zhang Zhifeng?”
Zhang Zhifeng stared at them. “… What’s wrong?”
The officer shouted. “What do you think?! Hurry up and get dressed!”
The Traffic Officer said. “This evening, around 6 pm, you drove without a driving license, got involved in an accident, and assaulted the driver and passenger of the Citroen car. At around 9 pm, you drove without a driving license and hit a pedestrian. After the accident, you drove off from the scene, and we are suspecting you of attempting murder. You are required to come back with us!” This Traffic Officer’s skill of making up false accusations is almost at Xiang Daofa’s level. He had just accused Zhang Zhifeng of attempting murder.
Zhang Zhifeng shouted angrily. “Go back with you?! Which bureau are you all from?!”
The Officer shouted. “How many Public Security Bureau are there in Yan Tai County?! Stop wasting time! Are you going to come with us willingly or not?”
“How many times must I tell you all?! Ah?! I did not hit anyone! It is that woman who had knocked herself into our car purposely! Didn’t your Chief Meng said everything is fine now?! Arrest me?! Who gives you all the authority to arrest me?! Who are you to arrest me?!” Zhang Zhifeng was more agitated than the officers. He took out his phone. “I will call your Chief Meng now! Do you all still have any regard for the law?! How can you all just arrest anyone like this?!”
Dong Xuebing stepped forward and grabbed Zhang Zhifeng by his hair. “I am arresting you!”
“Ah!” Zhang Zhifeng shouted in pain.
Dong Xuebing dragged Zhang Zhifeng off the bed by his hair, and Zhang Zhifeng dropped his phone. Dong Xuebing pulled Zhang Zhifeng up to his face and stared at him coldly. “If you do not know, I will tell you now! Your Chief Meng is from the Investment Promotion Agency and is a different department from Public Security! If you think Meng Xianglin can order the Public Security and makes all the decision, you can try calling him after you are locked up! See if he can bail you out!”
Zhang Zhifeng shouted! “Let go of me!”
That Officer twisted Zhang Zhifeng’s arm and handcuffed him.
Zhang Zhifeng cursed and shouted as he was being escorted out of his room. He also shouted for help from his colleagues. All of them were staying on the same floor, and they rushed out of their rooms when they heard the commotions. One of the is Sakamoto’s assistant, a staff and a bodyguard.
Zhang Zhifeng shouted in Japanese, and those Japanese were furious. The assistant immediately took out his phone to make a phone call. At the same time, the other two tried to stop the officers from bringing Zhang Zhifeng away. They were shouting in Japanese and pushing and shoving the officers. Dong Xuebing does not understand Japanese, but he knew it must not be something nice.
The Officer shouted. “Move aside!”
The Japanese refused to listen and grabbed the Public Security Officers, refusing to let them leave with Zhang Zhifeng.
Dong Xuebing kept quiet and looked at them. He had wanted to settle the score with them. When their car knocked into Luan Xiaoping, they were also in the car, and none of them had helped to call an ambulance. Instead, they escaped from the scene and are still behaving arrogantly.
“Chief Dong, what should we do now?” That Officer asked.
The Traffic Officer almost fell after the bodyguard pushed him. “Chief Dong!”
Dong Xuebing stepped forward suddenly and kicked the back of the bodyguard’s knee. The bodyguard’s left leg bent, and Dong Xuebing kneeled him in his stomach. That bodyguard fell onto the ground, gasping for air.
Zhang Zhifeng was shocked. “You dare to hit us?!”
Dong Xuebing ignored Zhang Zhifeng and slapped the other Japanese. That man almost fainted by the suddenly slap, and Dong Xuebing shouted. “Obstructing law enforcement! Assaulting Police Officers! Bring these two men back!”
The few officers rushed forward to pinned those two Japanese men down!
The female staff was stunned. She knew these Japanese have a special status, and her manager had still instructed them to provide special treatment. But this leader from the Public Security dares to hit them and even arrested them. Eh? They had called the leader as Chief Dong earlier. Is this person the Public Security’s God of Plague, Chief Dong?! No wonder he is so fearless! The female staff had heard that Chief Dong even dares to arrest the relative of the County’s Party Committee Member! Not many people will dare to do such things!
“Let go of me!”
“Why are you all arresting us?!”
“You all are the ones who started it. Even in Japan, you all should also know that it is an offense to assault Police Officers!” Dong Xuebing turns to the female staff. “Your hotel has CCTV on this floor, right? Bring my men over to get a copy of CCTV footage. We need it as evidence.” Dong Xuebing had wanted to take care of these people, that’s why he kept quiet earlier. He was waiting for the opportunity to arrest them. When the Japanese started pushing and stopping his officers from carrying out the arrest, Dong Xuebing stepped in. This is the opportunity he was waiting for. The kick and slapped are for his mother! All these Japanese, including Meng Xianglin, are responsible for his mother’s condition!
The few people from the investment site visit team were brought into the vehicle.
Dong Xuebing looked at one of the Officer. “Assaulting others in the evening, hit and run at night and assaulting Police Officers. Record these charges into the County’s Public Security Bureau system immediately.”
“Yes, Sir. I will do it now.”
“Let’s go! Back to the Bureau!” Dong Xuebing boarded the car!
Lots of eyes in the County were on the site visit team, and news of this incident spread immediately. The County’s Party Secretary Xiang Daofa was furious when he heard that Dong Xuebing had arrested the men from the team and even beat up two Japanese. He immediately called Liang Chengpeng on his mobile.
“Liang Chengpeng! What have you done?!” Xiang Daofa questioned!
Liang Chengpeng was shocked. “Secretary Xiang, what happened?” He had not received news of what Dong Xuebing did.
“Dong Xuebing had arrested the people from the Japanese team! He arrested three of them! What the hell is he trying to do?! Ah?! I want to know why he is doing this!!!” Xiang Daofa shouted.
Liang Chengpeng’s face changed. “Maybe… there is a misunderstanding…”
“Enough! You go and release them now!” Xiang Daofa hangs up.
Liang Chengpeng walked around his room for a while and called Dong Xuebing. “Xiao Dong! What are you doing? Release them immediately!”
Dong Xuebing, who was in the car, calmly replied. “Chief Dong, I am not unreasonable, and all I want is justice. Is it that difficult? Release them?! My mother is still fighting for her life, and I still don’t know if she can make it through! Hit and run, and the victim’s life is in danger! Are you telling me that I cannot even arrest the culprit? I don’t understand what the laws are for! Are these Japanese above the law?!”
Liang Chengpeng was shocked. “Your mother is in danger?”
“Chief Liang, I know what I am doing, and I will bear the full responsibility!”
After hanging up the call with Dong Xuebing, Liang Chengpeng immediately call his friend at People’s Hospital. “Hello? I am Old Liang. What happened to Chief Dong’s mother? The doctors are trying to save her?! What happened? Earlier tonight, her condition was still fine… how is she now? You say… yes… Huh? What? After Chief Meng visited her…” After understanding what happened to Luan Xiaoping, Liang Chengpeng banged the table angrily. He was no longer mad with Dong Xuebing now.
Liang Chengpeng understood how Dong Xuebing feels now.
The doctors are still trying to save Dong Xuebing’s mother, and the driver is not arrested. Who will accept this outcome?
If Luan Xiaoping is not seriously injured, it is still fine. But now, Luan Xiaoping is in the hospital because of the accident, and her condition changed for the worse because of something Meng Xianglin said to her. This hit and run accident are totally different now, and no one can reprimand Dong Xuebing for arresting them now! What he did was right!
Liang Chengpeng punched his table angrily… Meng Xianglin!
Liang Chengpeng is starting to side with Dong Xuebing, as he felt Secretary Xiang had handled this incident too hastily. No matter how Xiao Dong anger you, he is still one of the leaders in Yan Tai County. His mother was knocked down by a car, and how can we let the driver off? How can he send Meng Xianglin to threaten Luan Xiaoping? Look at what he had done! If Luan Xiaoping dies because of this, Xiao Dong will surely…
At this moment, Liang Chengpeng is at a dilemma after knowing Luan Xiaoping’s condition, and cannot call Xiao Dong to ask him to release those Japanese. He suddenly remembered one person. Mayor Xie and Xiao Dong are close, and he can only ask Mayor Xie for help.
Liang Chengpeng tried calling Xie Huilan, but no one answered after three calls.
Liang Chengpeng rubbed his temples. Most Party Secretaries and Mayors will not switch off their phones and will keep their phones with them 24 hrs. But now, he could not contact Mayor Xie… He knew it is impossible for Xie Huilan to not know about what happened tonight. Since she chose not to answer his calls and kept quiet… that means she agreed and approved what Xiao Dong did. If not, she would have stopped him earlier.
Liang Chengpeng sighed as he knows this incident will not end well.
County People’s Hospital. A Mercedes MPV and two Police cars parked along the road outside.
Zhang Zhifeng shouted. “Give me my phone! I want to speak to your leaders!”
“Shut the f**k up!” Dong Xuebing kicked him. Zhang Zhifeng shouted in pain as Dong Xuebing told the other officers. “Escort them back. I had told the Officers at the Bureau. Lock them in the darkroom and question them throughout the night! Don’t let them be too comfortable!”
After Dong Xuebing left, the Officers drove towards the Public Security Bureau with the Japanese.
Dong Xuebing was worried about his mother and did not return to the Bureau. He entered the hospital and went straight to the ER. 30 minutes had passed since his mother entered the ER, but the lights on the door were still lit. Dong Xuebing leaned against the wall and rubbed his face with his hands. He still does not know about his mother’s condition, and he hopes nothing will happen to her.
“Chief Dong?” A doctor walked past.
Dong Xuebing asked anxiously. “How is my mother? What is going on inside?”
The doctor replied. “We still don’t know the outcome yet. Her blood test results are showing a sudden increase in Cardiac markers, and we suspect she had a heart attack. Doctor Liu had done the Angiography on her, and the few Chiefs and Directors had arrived. They are discussing her condition and will operate on her in a while. I need you to sign some documents.”
“Heart attack?” Dong Xuebing’s face changed.
The doctor consoled Dong Xuebing and entered the ER. They are setting up the operation theater for the operation.
Dong Xuebing doesn’t dare to delay the operation and quickly sign the documents.
The operating theater’s door is closed!
The operation started!
Dong Xuebing closed his eyes as he rested his head against the wall.
Suddenly, ring… ring… ring… Dong Xuebing’s phone rang again!
Dong Xuebing answered. “Hello.”
It is Xiang Daofa’s secretary who called. Secretary Zhou shouted once Dong Xuebing answered. “Dong Xuebing! Do you know what you are doing now?! You are ignoring your higher-up’s orders! What are you trying to do?! Listen up! Secretary Xiang is ordering you to release them immediately and send them back to the hotel!”
Dong Xuebing flared up again. “Send them up in your mother’s ass!”
Secretary Zhou was stunned. “What did you say?!”
“My mother is still fighting for her life in the hospital! What’s wrong with arresting that bastard?! You want me to send the driver back to the hotel?! Are you f**king crazy?!” Dong Xuebing continued. “You want me to release them?! The hit and run accident and assault on Police Officers are all recorded in the system, and I do not have the authority to erase the files. You can come over to the Public Security Bureau and give me a written memo or let Secretary Xiang write an official order to release them. If you all dare to give an official order in writing, I will f**king release them immediately!”
Secretary Zhou was furious as he did not expect Dong Xuebing to swear at him.
Secretary Zhou will not sign any documents, and Secretary Zhou will not issue any written orders, as they do not want to be held responsible if anything goes wrong. Furthermore, Secretary Zhou had heard Luan Xiaoping was fine earlier, and why is she fighting for her life now? Under such circumstances, he will never sign any documents authorizing the release of the driver and the Japanese. If anything happens to Luan Xiaoping, that document will be evidence against him!
