Logistics department of the Defense Ministry
An entirely logical reaction I feel - for a Cambodian General.

Police are searching for a high-ranking military officer following a traffic accident on Saturday night in Sen Sok district after which the officer reportedly fired a shot at the driver of the motorcycle he rear ended, before fleeing the scene when police arrived.
Municipal Military Police deputy commander Colonel Pou Davy identified the suspect as Brigadier General Heng (“Lucky”) who worked in the logistics department of the Defense Ministry, but said he was unsure of the general’s full name.
The general – who was driving a Lexus RX 330 with license plates identifying him as a member of the Royal Cambodia Armed Forces – hit the back tire of the motorcycle on Street 271 in Tuk Thla commune, police said.
They said the motorbike driver, 26-year-old Ream Khun, stopped his bike in front of the Lexus and refused to budge. He waited for its driver to exit the vehicle and resolve the accident with him, and then slapped the hood of the Lexus and cursed as the general failed to do so.
The general opened the door, got out, drew his pistol and fired one shot at the young man, police said, adding that the general’s aim was off and Mr. Khun was left unscathed.
Municipal Military Police Chief Lt.-Colonel Maing Sokluch said the Lexus had been impounded at police headquarters. “So far, we have not arrested the suspect, but we his identity,” he said yesterday.
He said police were ready to arrest the general but added: “We are waiting for him to explain himself and resolve the incident with military police.”
