In an interview Friday, Yu said he was traveling with his wife in a consulate vehicle when he saw a patrol car with flashing lights behind him. Yu said he stopped and waited several minutes, but drove off when the officer stayed in his car and took no apparent act
Yu said he drove to the Chinese Consulate in the 3400 block of Montrose. When Yu drove through the consulate's automatic garage gate, the police car followed him.
Yu said he “made it clear” he was a Chinese diplomat, but the officer handcuffed him anyway. Yu said the officer struck him in the face, but he did not address the circumstances or specify when the alleged assault took place. Yu also suffered hand and neck injuries, according to a co-worker at the consulate.
Yu said the entire episode was captured on tape by a garage security camera. He and his wife later were released at the scene.
领馆的发言人说，郁的车子后面的车牌被偷了，但是，此外交官认为车前有车牌就足够了。A consulate spokesman said Yu's rear license plate had been stolen, but the diplomat thought having a front plate was enough.
A source familiar with the officers' version of events said Yu's vehicle was spotted about 4:30 p.m. Saturday traveling a short distance from the consulate without a rear license plate. With the police car following with flashing lights, the vehicle wound through Montrose for about five minutes before entering the consulate garage.
As the officer exited his patrol car, the source said, Yu greeted him with loud curses.
They were unaware they were on property owned by the Chinese government.
