A conscript, whom Thai media have described as a ‘gay soldier’, refused to go quietly after creating trouble in Walking Street. It got worse from there…

His partner became involved after a member of the public stepped in to assist a police officer before the men were finally overpowered. The melee continued at the Pattaya police station where serious charges were laid against the men.

One of the men threatened to shoot the officer.

According to Siamchon News, the incident began in Walking Street around 4am when a tourist reported trouble.  Police headed to the scene.

Pol Capt Sukhachai Thamsuree was allegedly kicked by Army conscript Jakraphat Khamreuang who was resisting arrest. A member of the public came to the policeman’s aid and this infuriated Jakraphat’s gay buddy, 31 year old Phittinan Charoenwong, who joined in the fight. Phittinan hit the police captain in the face during the tussle.

Back at the station Jakraphat threatened to shoot the police and made things worse for the pair as they hurled additional abuse, according to Siamchon News.

The pair are currently detained and have been charged with drunk and disorderly behavior, resisting arrest, assault on a police officer and slander.

Daily News is reporting that a 3 year old child remains in a serious condition in the Sri Racha hospital in Chon Buri after being attacked by a pack of ten dogs.

It is the second attack reported in two days in Thailand. On Wednesday afternoon a young Finnish boy was attacked by stray dogs at Ao Nang Beach in Krabi and remains in the local hospital recovering from his ordeal.

65 year old Jitpirom Phoonpatanassuk says she was taking her grandson Namning to look at some coffee plants growing next door but he then ran back home without her.

Next she heard Namning screaming after being attacked by at least ten local soi dogs. He suffered cuts and bites to his entire body and was covered in blood when his grandmother got to him.

He had cuts around his head, waist, back, and left and right side of his body.

She took him to Phayathai Sri Racha hospital where doctors have been attending to his wounds. As of this morning he was still unable to move.

The neighbour initially blamed the toddler for entering his property then agreed to settle with a 100,000 baht compensation payment.

The grandmother has made an official report about the attack with Sri Racha police.

Foreign tourists being tracked down for driving dangerously in Pattaya | The Thaiger

Daily News reports that Pattaya Police are tracking down two foreigners caught on video riding recklessly in the Jomtien area, south of Pattaya.

The video clip shows the two men waiting at traffic lights before racing each other with one man splaying his legs and doing a “wheelie”.

Neither of the pair were wearing a helmet or shirts.

The Pattaya police chief, Pol Col Apichai Krobpetch, spoke to Daily News Online and said he had ordered officers to find the tourists. CCTV at the intersection and along Jomtien Sai 2 is being checked to better identify the bikes and help track down the pair.

He said they will be charged with reckless endangerment of the public and not wearing helmets. The reckless endangerment charge carries the possibility of a jail term.

Earlier this week it was announced that three Thai motorbike riders had been jailed for doing wheelies along the highway. The jail terms were suspended by the court.
