Police have to settle argument over rude talk


Police were called in to settle an argument between a Sattahip minivan conductor and a customer who complained he was spoken to rudely.

Police arrived to find Flt Sgt Manop Poonrun arguing with Nawee Siengpanit, 43, who sells tickets in front of the Sattahip Naval Base. Manop complained to officers that Nawee used profanity and spoke rudely to him.

The argument broke out after Manop inquired about the price. When he was told it was 145 baht, Manop complained the normal fare was 120 baht and he refused to buy.

Nawee said he was upset because he didn’t like the tone Manop used to speak to him.

Police ultimately smoothed things over and extracted an apology from Nawee.
