As a matter of fact, you are only given a fine plus a community service depending on the offense. It would only become a crime if you use chewing gum as your tool in commiting crimes.
  • Other Minor Offenses – Here in Singapore, it is a mistake if you disobey the laws that are imposed most especially the minor offenses that they say.
