A drunk Chachoengsao man was arrested after allegedly running a police checkpoint and possessing a fake gun in Pattaya.
Suthee Noppasit, 31, was captured near Soi 9 following a 2 a.m. police pursuit.
Police accused Suthee of driving through a police checkpoint, causing several injuries as officers dove out of the way of his speeding Honda.
They then followed him and stopped the car behind Central Festival Pattaya Beach.
The suspect failed the alcohol-breath test and, after searching his car, police found a fake handgun and six fake bullets.
He was charged with reckless driving, running a checkpoint and possession of a fake firearm.
Suthee Noppasit awaits his fate after driving drunk and running a police checkpoint.
