Sixteen 15- and 16-year-olds from the same school in Sattahip and two outside students were remanded Aug. 4 outside the gates of the Royal Thai Marine Corps. Police recovered a pen gun, one bullet, brass knuckles, “cherry bombs” and an improvised explosive.
One of eighteen teenagers taken into custody for brawling in Sattahip points to weapons intended for use in the skirmish.
The tenth graders, split into two groups, had staged the fight after an earlier confrontation over whose motorbike could roar the loudest.
Two boys were injured enough in the brawl to need treatment at Queen Sirikit Naval Medical Center.
The teens were released, but faced disciplinary action from their school.
