She allegedly used abusive words on him as well.

Huang is also accused of assaulting security officer Jeiv Anay Alimithu by biting, hitting and kicking her at the condominium that evening.

As a result, Ms Jeiv Anay suffered two bite marks on her left hand.

On Dec 8 last year, a netizen uploaded two videos of a well-dressed woman scuffling with a male taxi driver and a female security officer.

The first video, which lasts more than three minutes, shows her having a tug-of-war with the man.

She keeps shouting “Let go!” in Mandarin, but the man hangs on to her bag.

She tries to kick him and even bite him, and he eventually gives in.

She also curses at the man throughout the video and shouts: “Call! Call the police.”

Someone then replies: “Call already… They are coming, on the way.”

The man and the woman stand facing each other as they wait for the police to arrive.

In the second video, lasting about one minute, shows the woman in another tussle – this time with a security officer.

The officer is seen trying to restrain her, but she still manages to kick the woman’s groin, and hit her head violently.

She also curses loudly at her.

A close-up of the security officer’s hand later shows some broken skin.

Dina Huang Chih-Yung faces a total of four charges, two of which are voluntarily causing hurt to another person, and the other two are pertinent to being verbally abusive.

Huang, who is represented by lawyer Diana Ngiam, will be back in court on May 26.

If convicted of assault, she can be jailed up to two years and fined up to $5,000 and if convicted of being verbally abusive, for each count she can be jailed up to six months and fined $5,000.
