Police Commissioner, Major General Antony Anderson, has ordered an investigation into a traffic incident in which a driver was recorded doing stunts in a motor car on Dunrobin Avenue, St. Andrew.

A video of a driver doing 360 degree turns in the middle of traffic on Dunrobin Avenue last week, has gone viral.
A man, Dennis Dietrih, has since confessed to the act, and apologised.
But a video has emerged casting doubt Mr. Dietrih was the driver.
Attorney-at-law, Bert Samuels, says a video alone is not sufficient evidence to charge a person for a crime.
Mr. Samuels says even if the police charged Mr. Dietrih, they may face challenges in court.
Mr. Samuels says the police can use their discretion where the incident doesn’t amount to serious damage to property, injury or loss of life.
But he warns that the police should always be transparent to avoid the perception of bias.
