Montri Padtha, 32, was arrested Aug. 7 after attempting to flee on foot near the Big C Extra mall on Central Road. Sen. Sgt. Maj. Worakorn Khumkongsuwan pulled him over for not wearing a helmet, then noticed his legs were shaking uncontrollably.
Worakorn said Montri then pulled a gun, which he knocked away before it went off. Montri then ran. The senior sergeant called backup, which quickly captured the shaky-legged man.
Police arrest Montri Padtha for illegal drug and weapons possession, plus pointing a gun at a police officer.
Searching the suspect, police found four methamphetamine pills in his pocket and a bag of 24 38-caliber bullets under the seat of his motorbike. He was charged with both illegal drug and weapons possession, plus pointing a gun at a police officer.
