A video of a man claiming to be a Canadian and asking police to "shoot" him has stirred controversy on Chinese social media. He was later found to be a teacher at a Canadian business school and has given speeches at a university in East China's Zhejiang Province.

In the video posted by police in Qingdao, East China's Shandong Province, the man, Zhao Qiang, confronted the police after his friend was caught drunk driving on Friday. 

"You could shoot me with a gun like Canadian police," he said drunkenly when he was dissatisfied with the police asking him to stand back to the side of the road.

He claimed that he is a teacher and is from Canada, and repeatedly said that the police could just shoot him down. 

The video soon attracted attention and his arrogant attitude has angered netizens. 

The introduction of his profile on Sina Weibo showed he was a teacher at Schulich School of Business of York University in Canada, and he was later found to have given lectures at Hupan University, a well-known elite business school in China. 

He also works as an executive at a technology company in Hangzhou, according to reports of a Qingdao-based media. 

Zhao said Sunday on Weibo that he had apologized to the police on Saturday, and felt sorry for the inappropriate remarks he had made in the video.
