Sattahip police arrested a drunk woman who attempted to hit people with her SUV before slamming into a utility pole.
Thitipa Chaowirun, 44, was arrested at the intersection of Soi Lung Pho and Soi Bonkai in Sattahip Nov. 11. Officers found her sipping a beer, waiting for them, behind the wheel of her smashed Toyota Fortuner.
The crash occurred after a police chase lasting about 20 minutes. Before that, she’d been seen driving erratically, attempting to hit pedestrians.
Police said the suspect’s friends reported she’d been distressed over personal problems and had four large beers before getting behind the wheel.
Thitipa Chaowirun, a large Singha beer still in the cup holder by the steering wheel, begins to resist arrest.
