The foreign man hailed a cab near Shuangjing with a female companion on September 6 around 9pm at south-east corner of Tianbian Street and Huili Road. However, a BMW was blocking the turning lane in front of the taxi. According to the cab driver and many eyewitnesses, the BMW went into reverse and collided with the taxi. That’s when everybody got out of their cars to talk it over.

Multiple witnesses say the two sides were just talking at first, but things escalated quickly when the expat kicked the front of the BMW. “Speaking honestly, the kick was not a heavy one,” according to one eyewitness, a Mr Wang.

After that, Wang said the driver of the BMW, a woman, tried to kick the foreigner; then he pushed her down. More pushing and shoving ensued.

At one point, as the foreigner was picking up his things, the driver began to whip him with a leather belt. The foreigner’s friend pleaded with her to stop.

Many eyewitnesses describe the actions of the BMW as “excessive”, with one saying, “That he kicked her car isn’t right, but that doesn’t mean you can hit someone first.” Many are reported to be willing to provide testimony to the police in support of the foreigner.

Under police guidance, the two sides have negotiated a settlement. No charges by police are mentioned in the report.

This is a video that shows the foreigner being attacked with a belt and his female companion continuously pleading for it to stop:

I taught at a major University of 90,000 students. Many educated Americans are there doing one last big-gig before retirement…

    I’ve commented and complained about other articles by Charles Liu multiple times, usually complaining of his lack of journalistic competence/integrity/etc., …{sigh} so here we go again:

    To Charles Liu: The proper term is “expatriate” (or “expat” for short). The term “foreigner” is dehumanizing. I understand that you, as an ethnic Han Chinaman, have trouble hiding your personal (“national”?) biases and prejudice, but as long as you are writing for a website that claims to serve expats, I would like to remind you (and others at thenanfang) to simply report facts and at least make an attempt at honest journalism.

    Otherwise, your website may very well go the way of that wumao rag “echinacities”, which is now and forever a laughingstock amongst respectable individuals.

      Wow hating on everyone.
      Only a expat if he lives here.
      Could be a tourist. Anyone living here knows not to stick the fat Fcking face into Chinese problems .

        What did I tell you in other threads, little troll boi? “Toothless” – LOL

        Next time you speak, remember to first take the Chinese noodledicks out of your mouth.

        • Toothless

          I know your keyboard must be smashed to bits by now but you can just click on the link with your mouse pad..

          maybe they can help.

          • Truthful

            Stop trying to demonstrate your stupidity.
            You are a loser English teacher trolling on a website.

            Res ipsa loquitur.
