The reporting leaves a lot to be desired as usual. 

First it says Mr Fagin went to the police and then it says that the police arrived at the scene. 

Which is it? 

And little detail of the 'misunderstanding', 800 each or 800 for the group? Was it ever established whether the students misunderstood? 

 

Perhaps there really was misunderstand and maybe, just maybe the driver was offering a fare of 800 for the group? Who knows?

 

Did the reporter try to get some clarity? 

 

Probably not, just write down whatever has been heard, no check for logic or correct details.

 

Poor reporting, as always.

 Hmmm .... "Misunderstanding..."

 I was thinking , possible  "Wet Road" as I started  reading.

 

The saffa appears to have come out of it better than the TT man anyway ...

I think it's almost impossible that it was a misunderstanding. Samui taxi mafia doesn't play around.... Specially not on New year's ..
