Mumbai: Assistant director of Salman Khan's movie Dabangg 2 Mark Samuel was arrested for alleged rash driving and assault on cops in suburban Jogeshwari on February 15, police said.
According to police, Samuel was driving a Maruti car with Vidushi Sood around 3.30 am at Behram Baug in Jogeshwari when they were intercepted by cops during a 'nakabandi'. He was found driving the vehicle under the influence of alcohol and also without license and tried to run away from the spot, said V Dhamgode, senior inspector at Jogeshwari police station. Also, the duo did not co-operate with cops and even assaulted policemen on duty.
