Pattaya police declined to charge a visibly intoxicated Russian woman with drunk driving even after she smashed her Honda compact into a light pole.
Police justified their free pass to the attractive 20s-age woman because no one was injured in the 3 a.m. crash on Central Road.
The drunk Russian refused to exit her damaged Honda Jazz and none of the police on duty spoke Russian, making negotiations impossible. Eventually, one officer drove the car back to Pattaya Police Station where the Russian still refused to get out of the car.
Hours later the woman decided to exit the vehicle, leaving it at the police station until she was sober enough to pick it up.
The inebriated woman refused to get out of the car, and eventually was let go by police.
