A truck full of drunk Songkran revelers were arrested after allegedly running through a police checkpoint and throwing beer bottles at pursuing officers.
Police said they received a tip April 15 that a black Toyota truck from Ayutthaya might contain illegal weapons. The truck was ordered to stop at a checkpoint, but refused to halt. Police pursued.
Not the sharpest tools in the shed, these drunken revelers decided to throw beer bottles at pursuing police.
Fifteen people in the truck – eight of them under age 18 – were all clearly drunk. They showered the cops with beer bottles for nearly a kilometer. No one was injured.
The truck finally stopped at the Marine Hotel in South Pattaya. Police searched the vehicle and found no weapons. The teens were then arrested inside the inn.
Arrested and drug tested were Khajornsak Bunlam, 20, Teerappong Imerb, 27, Sakulchai Bunyung, 21, Nat Nottue, 27, Pongphet Yabamsomthat, 18, Suchada Rawaeksom, 18, Nattawat Bunlam, 21, Hongda Sinsathan, 18, and seven teenagers ages 13-17.
