An abusive Australian has been filmed resisting arrest after being stopped by police in Pattaya. Police intervened and arrested Constantine Anagnostou for his ‘chaotic behaviour’ at an intersection on Pratumnak Hill.
A 5 minute video shared by Pattaya News showed Mr. Anagnostou swearing at police officers after claiming that one of the officers had assaulted him. It starts off with the Australian arriving on a motorbike, falling over and collapsing into bikes parked along the street.
As the clip progresses, a shirtless Mr. Anagnostou can be seen demanding police return his license, while also saying “mai mee tang” – that he had no money. He was then handcuffed by police officers as he hurled abuse and accusations at them.
77jowo reports that the man was involved in an earlier incident at the Ratio Bar where a motorcycle was damaged. It was claimed the man became abusive and threatened some of the bar staff, which is when police were called. Mr. Anagnostou is now in custody at the Pattaya Police Station.
