Man with motorbike fetish spared prison - what an interesting morning read. Heh.
A FETISHIST who gets a sexual thrill out of riding other people's motorbikes was spared a prison sentence for theft yesterday. Ding Poh Too was placed on two years' probation after stealing an $8,700 bike at Marina Bay Sands. The 48-year-old was diagnosed with the fetish more than 20 years ago, and it has landed him in jail at least three times. That did not stop him getting back in the saddle in a carpark at the integrated resort in March. Ding used a duplicate key to start the engine of the Honda CBR 400 owned by chef Kaname Iwasaki. He then rode off, even though he was uninsured and banned from driving. Four days later, he fitted the bike with a false licence plate. Read the full story in Thursday's edition of The Straits Times.
