Yet another case of domestic violence and drug abuse in Chon Buri province, as a local man allegedly threatened to attack his wife while high on meth yesterday in Panat Nikhom district. The man’s mother said that in the past, her son had hit his brother. Sompean Saminyae told The Pattaya News about her son’s violent outburst, saying, “He destroyed the door to our house. I asked him to stop but he did not listen to me before I called police”.

Panat Nikhom district police responding to the incident found the 35 year old man, Pongsakorn Saminyae, in an agitated state. When he saw police arrive at his house, Pongsakorn ran into a nearby forest, forcing police to chase him for more two kilometres. The police finally detained the man and took him to Panat Nikhom Police Station, where they reportedly found methamphetamine in his urine. He now faces multiple charges, including assault, drug usage and refusing lawful orders from a member of law enforcement.

There’s been a flurry of domestic violence reports in Chon Buri recently. Earlier this week, another Chon Buri man allegedly beat his wife after a TikTok video she made of their daughter went viral. The video showed their daughter begging for leftover soup from a street vendor. The man allegedly accused his wife of being unfaithful.

In a fatal incident last week, one Chon Buri man shot and killed his son, and wounded his wife, while his son was reporting to enroll at school. Reports said the man physically assaulted his wife the month before, and she filed a complaint with the Samet police station against her husband for physical assault and knife attacks.

The week before that, another man in Chon Buri stabbed his sister to death in an argument. The man told law enforcement he and his sister had argued over his drinking habits, and he was so offended by her “false accusations” that he decided to stab her to death.
