Free willy at the wat

CHALONG: A naked Slovenian man who ran short of medication for a nervous condition was found wandering around naked at Wat Lathiwanaram shortly after midday on Saturday. His stroll came to an abrupt end, however, when he was confronted by a white-robed temple nun. According to Lt Col Anek Mongkol of Chalong Police, the Slovenian, 38, rode his motorbike from Rawai Beach to the temple, where he disrobed and began walking around – until he was confronted by the nun. An argument ensued but no one was injured, Col Anek said. Col Anek would not confirm the Slovenian’s name, saying there was no record of it at the station because the man had not been charged with a crime. The Slovenian was allowed to “cool down” at the station for about three hours before he was released, Col Anek said. The man was under treatment for a medical condition and his actions were not the result of illicit drug use as reported in the Thai-language press, Col Anek told the Gazette.
