Thai road rage: Police slap two charges on Fortuner driver who drew a gun on Grab Food delivery guy

Police in Chonburi have charged a man with assault and illegally having a gun in public after a road rage incident was filmed in Muang district.

 

The footage showed a Toyota Fortuner driver pull out a gun and threaten a Grad Food delivery motorcyclist before a scuffle developed. 

 

Someone intervened and there was no shooting and the protagonists went their separate ways.

 

This had followed a minor traffic incident in which one of the vehicles had pulled in front of the other.

 

The Grab guy went straight to the Don Hua Lor police and filed a complaint with Pol Capt Decha Dindaen.

 

The Fortuner driver - aged about 40 - soon gave himself up and faces the two charges, station chief Pol Col Phatsakorn Thunsap told Daily News. 

 

Investigations are underway to determine whether to upgrade the assault charge to attempted murder in the light of the footage becoming known.

 

The suspect was granted bail. 

 

Pol Col Phatsakorn urged the motoring public to be calm and exhibit kindness and good sense when driving.

Good advice! Just pointless, because most Thais driving already refrain from this kind of behaviour. For all the ones that does it falls for deaf ears. As a police officer with experience he should know that.

Lesson learned. If you are ever assaulted, make sure that the episode is filmed. Then there is a chance the perpetrator will get punished.

 

For assault and having a gun in public he would probably get away with an apology.

The Grab Food people are all maniacs. I doubt if any of them have valid insurance, and almost as many will have a drivers licence. OK, it's better for these young men to be doing this than sitting idle and thinking how to break into your house, but they're out of control in Pattaya.

The Thai government has ordered everyone to stay at least 2 metres apart.

We most forgive them....for they know not what they do.

 

If someone is too stupid to know the rules of traffic it is not advisable to get upset with them.

 

Stupidity equals innocence.
