BANGKOK: All the cockroach did was behave the way any cockroach is expected to behave – by scuttling about the room in an annoying fashion. Yet its perfectly normal behavior started a chain of events that resulted in one man being killed and another being arrested. Bus driver Prayad “Pui” Kwanyun, 29, came home after work on January 13 and there the danged insect was, scampering annoyingly around his room in Sereethai Rd, Kwang Klongkum, Bungkum. Pui decided to exterminate it with a broom. Not to be disposed of so easily, the roach stayed out of his reach. Pui banged away with the broom until his neighbors became annoyed. One of them, Sa-ard Srisuwan, came to the room and complained. Pumped up with adrenalin from his roach hunt, Pui was in no mood for this. He punched Sa-ard on the chin, and Sa-ard fell to the floor. Dead. Pui was quickly in the hands of local constabulary. The whereabouts and condition of the cockroach are unknown.
