An irresponsible scooter rider attempting to flee the scene after a hit-and-run accident on Wednesday was stopped by a cyclist, who turned out to be a world famous music conductor.
The incident took place on the streets of Shanghai when a woman on a scooter knocked down a cyclist after breaking traffic rules and sped away from the scene.
A surveillance video shows a bicycle following the scooter and eventually forcing the rider to stop.
The cyclist, later identified as Liu Jian, tried to reason with the woman about what she did, but she reportedly blew up and started to call him names and threatening to take a photo of him and post it online.
A crowd of passersby was annoyed by her inappropriate language and joined the argument, siding with Liu.
Eventually, police arrived at the scene. The woman and the victim, who sustained light injuries, reached a compensation deal and the woman was fined 50 yuan (about 7.4 US dollars) for breaking the traffic rules.
Liu meanwhile was hailed for being a good citizen, but surprisingly, it was not the first time he has been under the spotlight.
He has worked as a conductor for the Shanghai symphony orchestra from 1983 to 1987, and is currently a conductor in the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College of the City University of New York, chairman of Eastwest Institute New York and a professor at China's Central Conservatory of Music.
In an interview on Friday, Liu said he just did what he should have done as a citizen, noting that he was actually moved by the people who helped him argue with the woman.
