Playboy arrested after pretending to sodomize police officer on video

The son of a wealthy businessman was arrested in the early hours of the morning today, after an investigation into a video showing him pretending to perform a sex act on a police officer when the officer bent over to write a speeding ticket.

February 24 this year, Lee Weide (李威德), 25, was traveling with friends in Cheng-gong Township, Taitung County, when he was pulled over by a police officer for speeding.

A video of the incident uploaded to social media showed the male police officer bend over to use the luggage compartment of the car as a table to write the speeding ticket. While the officer is bent over with his head inside the car, Lee stands close behind the officer, pretends to grab the officer by the hips, and makes backwards and forwards thrusting motions with his groin, while making slapping gestures at the police officer’s buttocks.

Sometime later, Lee uploaded the video to his Instagram account, where he has more than 100, 000 followers, and the video spread across various platforms, gaining the attention of media and the police in mid-April.

Senior police officers called the video a public insult. Some also noted that the video exposed potential dangers that officers face when working alone. The police officer was surrounded by 10 of Lee’s friends at the time, and should never have turned his back on them.

Taitung County police coordinated an investigation with police in Hsinchu County, and shortly after midnight this morning, the officers arrested Lee in Hsinchu City.

Lee was transferred to Taitung County to face the district prosecutor at around 9:00am on charges of nuisance, insulting a civil servant, and sexual harrassment.

It’s not the first time Lee, the son of a wealthy businessman with business interests in China and Taiwan, has been in trouble with the law.

In 2017, Lee, who receives NT$200,000 per month “pocket money” from his family, according to an Apple Daily report, faced charges of secretly filming women having sex with him, then uploading video and images to social media, and intimidating his victims.

Police found 300 gigabytes of material on his hard drive involving 15 women between the ages of 16 and 24.

When police surrounded his luxury residence in Luzhu District, Taoyuan City, Lee broadcast the incident live to social media, taunting police from his balcony, and filming them breaking down his door.

Between the arrest and his imprisonment, Lee made a live video on social media – “How to smoke K,” where he smoked ketamine.

Lee did not even allow his imprisonment stop him from appearing on social media. Several of his friends visited him in prison and broke prison regulations by taking pictures and video of the visit, and uploading to social media for his fans.
