Fine behavior | Thaiger

BANGKOK: The daughter of a retired police general ran amok at Dusit Police Station after suffering the indignity of seeing her boyfriend fined for driving without a license. The incident occurred at about 11 pm on June 26. Kwanreuthai Taensawat, 31, and her 25-year-old brother Supakorn were in a pickup truck being driven by her boyfriend, Thongchai Khombaramee, when it was stopped at a police checkpoint in front of Dusit Zoo. When 33-year-old Thongchai failed to produce a license he was asked to visit the police station to pay a fine. This infuriated his privileged passengers, and when they arrived at the station, Supakorn shoved an officer and was sent to an interrogation room to “cool down”. But his sister was just warming up. She screamed abuse at the officers and shocked a crowd of onlookers by punching the station’s Inspector hard in the face. She then bit down hard on the thumb of a housekeeper who tried to grab her, started smashing glass and brandished a broken bottle. Brother and sister were both charged with abusing an on-duty officer and resisting arrest; Kwanreuthai was also charged with assault. After reporters arrived, Kwanreuthai calmed down, confessed to the charges, and said she had plenty of money to pay for the damage. She then called her relatives and told them to come to the station to bail her out. Thongchai paid his 100-baht fine without protest.
