Pattaya – ‘Cheap Charlie Brit’ Resident suffers broken arm over 40 baht parking fee

Via: Pattaya One

1

In the early hours of Sunday, a 70 year old British resident of Pattaya suffered a suspected broken arm following an altercation with a car park attendant who was unable to collect a 40 Baht parking fee from him.

The incident occurred at a car park opposite the Diana Dragon Apartments in Soi Buakhao just before 2.30am, which was under the control of Khun Tosapon aged 19. Mr. Charlie Hayward reportedly parked his Bronze Chevrolet car in the car park and left for a short moment to purchase something and then returned to his car.

Khun Tosapon claims he approached Mr. Hayward and requested the 40 Baht which was not forthcoming. He further explained that Mr. Hayward attempted to drive away which enraged the parking attendant who picked up a piece of wood and struck Mr. Hayward’s car.

Mr. Hayward stopped his vehicle and confronted the attendant who then struck the elderly man across his arm. Police arrived and arrested the teenager who was later charged with assault. Mr. Hayward was sent to Hospital and is currently recovering from his injuries.

Personal thought:

Khun Tosapon was in the wrong to hit Charlie and/or his car.

But it was also wrong to rip-off the kid for 40-baht ($1.23USD).

At 00.10 am Pol.Capt.Netithorn Rattanasuchanan-deputy investigation inspector- had led a team of police officers and volunteer police to crack down on lady boy gangs who prostituted around Walking Street, South Pattaya and Pattaya beach.

The police officers aimed to clamp down on crime and drugs in Pattaya especially the lady boy gang that are always prostituting and stealing from foreigners. This behaviour had destroyed the good image of Pattaya therefore the police officers had to crack down on them.

The police officers caught 20 lady boys and took them to police station, recorded their information, and fined them 200 baht ($6.25 USD) for each before letting them go. Plus the officers had detained a group of 5 lady boys and Thai girls who were suspects in case of snatching a wallet on a baht bus. However the police officers will contact the foreign victim so the snatchers can be identified.

Pattaya – knife attack leaves American seriously injured

Via: Pattaya One

1

Late on Wednesday Night a 52 year old American cyclist was left with serious flesh wounds after he was subjected to a frenzied knife (a butcher knife? yeah maybe) attack by a motorcyclist following a minor road accident involving the pair in Central Pattaya.

The incident occurred in Soi Xzyte off Pattaya Third Road, just after 10.30pm where Khun Prasit aged 29 works as a part-time masseur, when he is not at his full-time job as a butcher. Mr. Daniel O’Neill from America was reportedly on his bicycle and was struck by Khun Prasit who was conducting a U-turn maneuver so he could drive home after finishing his shift at the massage shop.

His motorbike came into contact with Mr. O’Neill’s bicycle and although no significant damage was caused to the bike or Mr. O’Neill, angry words were exchanges which enraged Khun Prasi. He produced a knife and attacked the American who was left with a number of slash wounds causing a significant loss of blood.

Mr. O’Neill was sent to Banglamung Hospital while Khun Prasit, who was accompanied by his Wife, later handed himself into Pattaya Police Station where he allegedly confessed to the attack.

Khun Prasit was charged with assault and awaits further legal procedures while Mr. O’Neill remains in Hospital for now as he recuperates following the violent attack.

Personal thought:

Even if you are right, as Mr. ONeill was clearly was, don’t get into an argument with a Thai.

Q: why?

A: There’s a good chance he might be armed with a knife or gun.

Q: What if KNOW he doesn’t have a knife or gun?

A: Because there is a good chance 6-8 Thais around who will join the argument; and you are libel to have the krap kicked out of you.

 

WALK AWAY!

Fortunately there were no injuries and no other cars were involved in the accident.

reporters revealed that there was a video clip of a severe car accident which had been spread on social media web sites. The video clip was 23 seconds long. In the video a Mitsubishi car was doing a U-turn on a bridge on the Bangkok-Chonburi motorway when it accidentally fell off the edge of the bridge. It’s expected that the driver was driving too which landed on the concrete barrier. Fortunately there was no other cars or people involved.

The accident caused a lot of congestion because people were slowing down the have a look at what had happened. However the driver hadn’t suffered any server injuries from the accident and asked the police to call a tow truck.

Pattaya – Wheelchair Way Construction Completed

1

Soi Panead chang alley, Pattaya Daily News reporters had inspected a wheelchair way which had just been finished. The wheelchair route is on the left hand side of the road and is about 1 metre in width. Also the road has been raised in certain places where they can cross the road. The one crossing is opposite the North Pattaya junction.

Upon inspecting the wheel chair route which has just been it was still dangerous (yeah, you think?) some areas near construction sites and where people had parked their cars on the route which has caused the wheel chair users to cross the road in very dangerous areas.

Mr.Suppaluk Wongyapeng a 25 year old wheel chair user said he had used the new wheel chair way and had lived in Pattaya for 3 years. Previously wheel chair users had a lot of difficulty moving around the streets because some side streets had a lot of cars and motorbikes parked in them.

HOWEVER, the officers had constructed the new wheelchair way but some people still drove too fast and parked their cars on the wheelchair way.

personal thought:

After nine-years living in Thailand, I am convinced of the following:

1. IF you want to be handicapped, walk on a ‘handicap sidewalk’.

2. IF you want to get your ass run over, ride your wheelchair on the ‘wheelchair way’.

GUARAN-F’N-TEED!

The police of Pattaya city police station, Chonburi province, leaded by Pol.Capt. Netithorn Rattanasuchanan (Deputy Inspector of Pattaya city police station, Chonburi province) and forces of police and volunteer police teams and over 20 officers of the special detachment of Chonburi Provincial Police Station (both in uniform and plainclothes ) together suppressed and arrested groups of woman and lady boy prostitutes that loitered to offer foreign tourists sexual services on Pattaya beach and Walking Street.

Pol.Col. Supphathee Boonkhrong (Deputy Commander of Chonburi provincial police station, Acting Superintendent of Pattaya city police station) emphasized on suppressing and arresting such offenders in order to improve the image of Pattaya city and to prevent crimes that may be committed by the groups of woman and lady boy prostitutes.

During the sweep the police arrested over 60 defendants including females and lady boy prostitutes and also could arrest over 10 females from Madagascan. The police detained all the defendants and sent them to Pattaya city police station in order to check their criminal history and to record their details before prosecuting them in the allegation of pestering other people for sexual services in a public area. They were all fined around 500 THB ($15.38 USD) before letting them go.

personal thought:

For the last few years, the fine was 100 THB. At 500 THB it might (???) be more effective, but I doubt it.

HAPPY HOLIDAY!
