PATTAYA: Stoned, broke and angry, Ampon Rattanchot tried a new form of persuasion when a cousin refused to lend him money. Police arrived on Soi Yensabai in south Pattaya to find Ampon babbling incoherently and slashing away at the cousin’s motorcycle with a sword. Police restrained the hysterical man and found 10 ya bah (methamphetamine) pills in his pocket. Ampon later confessed that he had been drinking with his cousin and had asked for a loan to take his child to the doctor. When the request was refused, Ampon went into a rage, grabbed a sword from his cousin’s house and began attacking his cousin’s motorcycle. Ampon was charged with drunk and disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and possession of a class-one illegal substance. The fate of the motorbike was not revealed.
