A Roi Et man was arrested for smoking shisha in public.
Art Chaiyarat, 24, was found at a storefront in South Pattaya minutes after midnight June 1.
Police took him into custody for smoking baraku tobacco in public. They then searched the premises for supplies of the banned tobacco product.
No baraku was found. Officers recovered only some smoking paraphernalia. But they determined the shop had no license and so arrested owner Sukanya Amto for that offense.
Police confiscated hooka water pipes from a store in South Pattaya.
