DRUNK, JILTED AMERICAN BASHES HIMSELF WITH BEER BOTTLE IN PATTAYA BEER BAR
On June 3, 2008, a number of Pattaya police officers attempted to calm down a drunken American who purported to be an ex-GI, who was in the process of beating himself on the head with a beer bottle in Sa-gnuen-Chai Beer Bar. He had been dumped by a Thai girl and was heart-broken. The man caused himself severe head wounds with blood streaming down all over his face and body.
At 4am on June 3, Pol.Lt.Col. Sompol Nak-kamphan, Pattaya Investigator, was notified by a staff member of Sa-gnuen-Chai Beer Bar, located in front of Soi 10, Pattaya 2nd Road, about the drunken antics of the supposed ex-GI and sent an investigative team.
At the scene, police officers found the American (30), his head wound bleeding profusely, with tattoos all over his body, wearing a black T-shirt and military camouflage trousers. The man was very intoxicated, insulting everyone who came near him and refusing help. The staff members of the bar told officers that the man was a regular customer, but today he had had a lot to drink and was apparently out of control. The man told the officers that he had been jilted by his Thai girlfriend and did not want to go back home after closing time. The staff told him that they were going to close the bar, but the drunken man ignored their pleas and started to hit himself with the beer bottle and hurt himself severely.
Police officers tried to calm him down in order to take the drunken man to the hospital for treatment, but he resisted and swore at the officers in Thai. Additionally, he kept repeated that he had been in the front line for 6 years during the Vietnam War, (a total impossibility, considering his age) and he wanted to be left alone.
The officers were concerned not only because the man was bleeding profusely, but also that he might constitute a threat to others and decided to seize him. Although the man resisted, causing the police difficulty, they eventually managed to get him under control. Sawang Boriboon Rescue immediately gave him first aid before taking him to Pattaya Memorial Hospital for treatment and to calm him down sufficiently for him to go home.
