– (VIDEO) Brits severely injured in violent brawl with freelance security guards
Two British men, identities known to the authorities but withheld, were beaten and kicked remorselessly by a bunch of freelance minders or security guards in Soi 6 at the weekend, leaving both injured and one needing ICU treatment. Some reports suggest that he passed away from his injuries, while others state that he remains in critical condition. With Nightwish Group employing their own regulated security teams, many other bars pay for the services of the lethal gang that have inflicted multiple injuries prior to this event, but whom they can call and get a quick response in the event of a problem. In this case, three British men were in a bar and planned to leave. One objected to the amount on his bill, around 2000 baht, and an argument ensued during which he became aggressive toward the manager and female cashier who, in turn, called for help. With two or three men in black shirts on the scene quickly, an argument ensued that saw several pushed by the British men, leading to a standoff, and one, assumed to be the manager, pushed out and down the steps from the bar. According to staff in the bar, the British man had sworn, cursed, and threatened after seeing how much he had spent and not believing it. Despite one of his pals paying the bill, the angry tourist at one point punched or pushed one of the security men.

That’s when it turned ugly as more men in black shirts arrived, this time meting out their own form of punishment. Two of the British were beaten to the ground in the street as screams from bar girls filled the air. Not content with having beaten and kicked the two, now curled up on the ground, kicks and punches continued until one so-called guard literally took a penalty shot at one man’s head, leaving him unconscious. There’s no doubt that the customer behavior was less than acceptable; however, the extreme and vile extent of these freelance so-called security men was beyond acceptable. Video clips show clearly that, outnumbering the two, they were venting an anger that would be unacceptable anywhere globally for a tourist destination. With video clips and reports now sent to City Hall, police are said to have rounded up the men in black for questioning, but it’s believed they were later released. A full-on fight in Soi 6 is a rarity for sure, and when we spoke to a security guard working for another bar group, we were told that they are told to expect stupidity, threats, and even violence but are banned by their employers from reciprocating, other than to ensure the safety of staff and the public and to restrain. This event, which is already hitting newswires globally, is likely to tarnish again the reputation of the city, and with most, if not all, bar operators condemning the level of violence, they hope that an alternative security system, without these goons, replaces them.

– Plane returns to Singapore after turbulence-tragedy
The Singapore-owned Airapan, which endured severe turbulence, leaving one dead and many still hospitalized after an emergency landing here, has flown on to Singapore this weekend.

– Expat apologizes for assault on petrol station attendant
The expat reported last week, who slapped and berated a petrol station attendant in Udonthani after being asked to pick up the litter he threw on the forecourt, has apologized after being identified by police through the plates on his car. Claiming to be an ex-British military and to have aided Thai authorities in key cases in the south, Mr. Davis apologized to the attendant and compensated him for his injuries and medical costs. Accepting that his violence was well over the top, blaming it on a local village celebration which involved drinking local spirits, he is said to be ashamed of his behavior, and police will take no further action.

– Speeding car plummets off flyover in Thailand
In Nonthaburi Sunday, a speeding Honda on a flyover attempted to slip in between two other vehicles without realizing there wasn’t enough space to do that, causing it to go up over one of them and over the side of the flyover. The high drop saw the vehicle damaged beyond repair, and the driver hospitalized.

– Expat charged with fellow countryman’s demise
In a remote northern Thai province, a 42-year-old Belgian has been charged with the death of his fellow countryman and erstwhile friend after he was stopped while transporting the man’s motorbike on his pickup truck by police. When questioned, he told them that his pal had died from a gunshot wound, which he himself had inflicted after a row over a loan.

– Locals take action against disruptive tourists on big bikes
And on Samui, when locals complained about tourists revving up big bikes and giving the finger to locals who complained, police told them there wasn’t much they could do without evidence. That was an easy fix; they filmed the next day and forwarded that to authorities, who duly arrested them, finding that the bikes were rented in the noisy condition from a local shop, which faces investigation too.
