A broke Norwegian was arrested for overstaying his visa by nearly three months.

Tom Henning Bruvold, 47, was apprehended Aug. 17. He claimed he lost his travel documents.

Immigration officials checked his travel history via computer and determined he entered Thailand on April 22 on a 30-day visa waiver that expired May 21.

He was charged with overstaying 86 days.

Bruvold finally admitted he had not intended to stay in Thailand longer than his visa allowed, but he had run out of money and asked to be deported home.
