PHUKET: A 21-year-old Phuket man studying in Bangkok has been arrested on an outstanding warrant for a slew of charges for his alleged role in the Thailand Riot four years ago.

 

 

 

During the riot, which lasted through the night of Oct 11, 2015, hundreds of protesters torched cars and hurled bricks at Thalang Police Station in retaliation to two local teenagers dying in a motorbike chase by police allegedly pursuing the teens to arrest them for drugs.

 

Several police officers were injured in the melee.

One of the funniest events, locally. Watching the locals control that police station. Benny Hill couldn't have designed that comedic sketch!

At the Fact he was 15 . 

If he's now 21 and "the fact" was in October 2015, he was about 17-18.
