A severely intoxicated foreign man went on a rampage on Soi Buakhao before finally being corralled by police.
Authorities arrived around 6 a.m. outside the Siam Sawadee Hotel to find the unidentified foreigner with cuts all over his body and his shirt full of blood. The man was very drunk and possibly on drugs as well, officers said.
Police tried to calm down the suspect, but he ran into the hotel’s parking garage and locked the gate. Officers again tried to talk him down, but the man was intent on destroying anything he could get his hands on.
Somehow, he slipped out of the car park and ran into a nearby beer bar, assaulting the early morning customers there. Police came down hard on him, slamming the cuffs on him.
Witnesses said the suspect had been drinking nonstop in the bar since the night before and clearly had gotten himself into an altered, agitated state.
