An April 14 police crackdown netted police 240 PVC high-powered water guns and 22 motorcycles modified with loud exhausts.
Pol. Lt. Col. Saranpong Maithongkulthorn, Pattaya Police Station Inspector and his intrepid team of highly trained bobbies, confiscated the PVC guns with a directive from higher ups that the high-powered water ejectors could cause harm to revelers. It could also lead to accidents if shot at motorcyclists.
They also impounded the motorcycles and announced the “situation was normal.”
There was no mention of fines or arrests, or any penance the perpetrators might have suffered due to their inappropriate behavior.
