A video which social media users find amusing captured the moment two ‘deaf’ men were stopped by police officers at a checkpoint.
The first officer that signalled the car to stop was surprised when they started using sign language to communicate with him.
He attempted to speak the language by using his hand but the men insisted on acting like they were not understanding what he was saying. But when he asked for a driver’s license, he brought it out.
Although it is yet to be confirmed if the two men are actually deaf, the scene turned dramatic when another police officer joined them and seemed to be asking for money for food.
They insisted on speaking with their hands and at some point, the officers got tired and just asked them to go. Interestingly they met another officer after driving off the same exchange was repeated.
