A tour bus driver has now been fired by the tour company that employed him as a driver after he went on a drunk-driving rampage in Bangkapi district of Bangkok around 3am Thursday morning. The incident was reported by khaosod.co.th.

The drunk driver was taken to a police station after being nearly lynched by a mob. He was charged with drink-driving and causing injuries to pedestrians and traffic.

The driver drove the bus out of the company’s car park without permission. Khao Sod didn’t report on the reasons for ‘borrowing’ the bus and taking it for a ‘spin’.

And angry mob stopped the driver. Police waited for the mob to cool down a bit before intervening and arresting the driver. The license plate of the bus was clearly captured by a bystander that figured it was a good idea to video of the violent mob.
