Video: Pick-up man wais in apology after pulling a sword on a taxi driver twice his age

Thai social media was widely sharing yet another serious road rage incident that happened in the Bang Plee area south east of Bangkok. 

 

CCTV showed a fat man aged about 30 to 35 advance on a taxi being driven by a 62 year old man.

 

The pick-up driver was brandishing a sword and the taxi driver suffered a hand injury when he tried to grab it. 

 

Pol Col Sophon Mongkhonsophonrat, chief of the Bang Plee force, told Daily News Online that the assailant gave himself up after the incident.

 

He gave a wai in apology and said he was angry that the taxi driver did not allow him to pass. 

 

It appears he has been charged with assault and having a weapon in public though police played down the incident saying the old driver had made a grab for the weapon to defend himself.

He's head wasn't chopped of, so that wai will be sufficient.

I watched it on the Thai TV news this morning, the fat <deleted> excuse was that he was drunk and couldn't control his temper!

If one is going to assault someone with a sword, the least they should do is put on a shirt for reasons of decency.

A wai seems to be sufficient for everything short of murder, doesn't matter if there is zero sincerity behind it.

Surprised the driver of the pickup was not arrested for not wearing a shirt as he is supposed to under the law.
