Hollywood-style bar brawl in Patong

PHUKET: A bar in Patong was wrecked this morning when a vicious fight broke out between two gangs at 3am.

The men, numbering at least ten, were all young and muscular and smashed wooden chairs and bottles over each other in the fight on Soi Happy off Rat-U-Thit 200 Pii Road, said Phuket Immigration Volunteer Mr Robin Lee.

Three police officers, including Superintendent Col Grissak Songmoonnak, arrived on the scene soon after the fight broke out.

“Col Grissak went straight into the midst of the brawl and brought the situation under control within seconds. He commanded the men to ‘stop fighting and sit down’. The brawlers were all handcuffed before being taken off to the police station,” said Mr Lee.

Many of the brawlers ended up with cuts and bruises, but none of them seemed to have any serious injuries, said Mr Lee.
