"Happy" the drink driving monk tells cops he thought the alcohol was "medicine"

Caption: Hunt for the driving monk

 

Police in Chaiyaphum in Thailand's north east mounted a search after locals reported a man in saffron robes was driving erratically in the area. 

 

A checkpoint mounted by the Phukhiaw constabulary soon had the drunk monk in custody.

 

He was Phra Suksan (happy) Kanyen from Khon Kaen who said he was going to see his ex wife in Chaiyaphum.

 

He was a bit belligerent at first - as shown in a Thai Rath video - but in the end he went quietly to his defrocking. 

 

He was found to have 158 mg of alcohol in his blood - well over the limit. 

 

Regarding the alcohol he claimed: "I thought it was medicine - they told me it was medicine".

 

This resulted in a few chuckles from the arresting officers who then asked: "OK...was it Lao Khao or Lao Dong?" (two kinds of potent spirit enjoyed by mostly country folk).

 

""Ya Dong," he said. "It made my face go red".

 

He claimed he took the "medication" to "help his food go down". 

 

The police charged him with drunk driving.

Again a monk behaving badly, drink driving, when monks are not supposed to be driving.

On his way to visit his ex? What for? leg over probably.

Just another one to add to the ever increasing list of badly behaving monks.

He gets the award for the most stupid excuse of the year,

If they had a Tv series called "Monks behaving badly " it

would be up to its 27 th series by now. defrocked he will

just move to another temple,and will still be taking his medicine.

This must be a new type of Thai Buddhism in the making?

Going to visit ex-wives is a lot more spread than you could imagine. 

I've seen it happening a lot. And it's usually for one or two reasons, giving them money they had made at the temple, or getting money from the ex-wives who were working.  Jeez.
