Police were first notified about a foreign man “harassing” boats in off the Pattaya coast driving a Jet Ski. According to reports from some of the people affected, the man was cutting off other boats causing “dangerous risk” and he was also climbing into random tourist boats in the area. The man then drove his jet ski into the Jomtien Beach trying to flee from officials in hot pursuit. This all happened on July 31.

According to police, he was driving his jet ski into restricted parts of the waters where small boats and jet skis were not allowed. He was even driving the jet ski around Bali Hai Pier, another restricted area.

When the man noticed officials he headed for Koh Larn and started to drive his jet ski extremely close to people swimming in the area. He then used the jet ski to cut off a boat that was delivering tourists from Pattaya to Koh Larn. But officials finally caught up with him at the Ocean Marina Yacht Club in Na Jomtien.

The man has been identified as 45 year old Baker William Alexander from Canada. He proved to officials that he had all the required documentation to drive his jet ski but officials are now working to cancel his permits. He has also been told that he will be prosecuted if he attempts to drive his jet ski again. Baker was arrested and taken to the Tourist and Immigration Police for further prosecution.

But’s not Mr Baker’s first time harassing people, onshore as well as offshore. Police discovered that the man is the same person that attacked random people on the street with a knife and climbed on top of village rooftops.

On that occasion he was wielding a machete in a standoff with neighbours on a roof in Kasetsin Soi 2 on the weekend of July 13 and 14. That time he was shouting… “I’ve chopped down bigger trees than you”.

There are currently a number of other cases pending for Mr. Baker.

A heritage museum in Pattaya is blaming a “faulty pump” for the flow of black wastewater that was flowing into the coastline on the Pattaya beachfront at Wong Prachan Bay. The “Sanctuary of Truth Museum” VP denied that they’d intentionally allowed the dirty water onto the beach. But later the vice president of the Sanctuary of Truth, Warakorn Wiriyahan, added that the discharge seen in the Facebook post was “due to a problem with its wastewater treatment system”.

He added that heavy rains in Pattaya over the past week had “overwhelmed the system”.

“The water pumps installed to treat wastewater were faulty. That has now been fixed.”

The damning video was posted on Areerut Sinsupun’s Facebook account yesterday. It shows the black water flowing out of a drainage pipe onto the beach and into the sea.

The comments on the video were predictably savage and mostly urged the local Pattaya officials to do something about it.

“Been doing this for years”

“Broken pipe? Broken pipe for over 30 years. 😆😆😆

“Covid 20”

Sanctuary of Truth Museum claims to house the world’s largest and most beautiful woodcarving. It appears to be less willing to share the ‘truth’.

Meanwhile, the Pattaya Municipality, in a rare moment of candor, shared the video on its own Facebook account. Comments mostly blamed the municipality for not checking the storm drains pumping ‘black water’ onto Pattaya’s beaches.

Magical ‘fixes’ are often claimed after these too-frequent videos appear on social media, until they re-occur, which is usually the case.

Pattaya police are investigating an incident in which a car flipped over on motorway 7, injuring five school-age occupants. The car’s driver was allegedly speeding and lost control of the vehicle on a bend, which flipped over and landed on its roof. Multiple emergency response units arrived at the scene to attend to the injured passengers.

All the occupants are believed to be between the ages of 16 and 18 as their names have not been released due to their age. 3 have been seriously injured while the other 2 have minor injuries. The driver is reportedly in critical condition at the hospital.

The Pattaya News reports that one of the passengers says the car was travelling at a high speed when the driver lost control. The teenagers were reportedly coming from an entertainment venue, but the interviewed passenger denies that any of them had been drinking. Police say they are still investigating and are looking at CCTV for clues.

A Russian woman has survived an apparent suicide attempt in which she jumped from a third floor balcony in Pattaya after allegedly murdering her one year old daughter. The 31 year old, named as Anna Efimova, sustained only minor injuries in the fall. The Pattaya News reports that she is undergoing treatment at a local hospital, after which she will be detained in police custody for questioning.

The woman is understood to have thrown herself from the third floor of an apartment building in the Naklua sub-district. When rescue workers arrived, the distressed woman said her husband caused her injuries. However, this was disputed by her landlord, who said the woman lived alone with her daughter.

When police searched the woman’s apartment, they found the body of a 1½ year old girl in the bathroom. Injuries to the body, which was wrapped in towels, appear to show she was beaten. The police say the bathroom toilet was ripped out of the ground and smashed. They also reportedly confiscated 2 bags of white powder, which will be tested for illegal drugs. The woman will also undergo drug testing at the hospital, where she is currently on suicide watch.

Police say they plan to review CCTV footage from the apartment complex and will interview the woman when she has sufficiently recovered.
