China Official Covered Up Son’s Drunk Assault, China Daily Says

Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Chinese investigators found that a deputy provincial police chief in northern China helped cover up his son’s drunken assault of a traffic officer and should be fired, China Daily reported today.

Li Yali, who was suspended as deputy director of the public security department in Shanxi Province over the incident last month, abused his power to help his son after the traffic stop, the newspaper reported.

The son, Li Zhengyuan, refused to cooperate and attacked a traffic officer when he was stopped Oct. 13 after making an illegal left turn, the newspaper said. His blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit, it said.

Charges were never filed and video footage from surveillance cameras near the scene of the traffic stop was deleted, China Daily reported. If discipline officials agree with the investigators, Li Yali will be removed from his post permanently and stripped of his Communist Party membership, the newspaper said.
