Petchkasem police have charged a 32 year old motorcycle taxi rider (Win) with assault after he used his helmet to bash a 75 year old taxi driver causing head and facial injuries. 
 
The chief of police said that the incident began after a collision in the Bang Khun Thian area after which a chase ensued. 
 
Phachorn, 32, then assaulted Meng S. , 75, near an intersection in Bang Khae.

Both parties filed complaints with the police following the incident yesterday afternoon. 
 
The Win rider claimed that his wife was hurt in a collision and the taxi driver fled the scene. 
 
He then claimed that the old man then went for him with what looked like a screwdriver resulting in him using his helmet to beat the driver.

A paper thin veneer separates a Thai and his emotions. 12 year olds most of them.

Look at the damage to that taxi, he sure has hit something....and 75 is too old to drive taxi anyway.

A guy in his 30's has to resort to battering a fella old enough to be his grandfather with a helmet? Pathetic, but similar to that which we see way too often. Stop with the wais and the petty fines and give these people 5 years in jail and we might see the number of incidences start to drop.

That taxi might have almost killed him and tried to flee after it...so because the driver is 75 he should get away with it? I don't think so.

75 year old guys definitely should not have a taxi license but an annual check for fitness for driving a car
