The police chief in Trang in the south of Thailand has admitted that a mistake was made after officers from the Huay Yot district shot at the wrong fleeing car. 

 

They mistook a Nissan Almera for a Nissan Juke. 

 

They shot an entirely innocent female clerk in the leg. Fortunately she is recovering in hospital.

 

Trouble had flared in neighboring Krabi province in Klong Tom district during a domestic dispute in which a man held his wife at a house. 

 

Police and a phu yai ban were injured in a shootout and the husband took off with the wife in a white Nissan Juke.

 

Officers in Trang thought they had found the right car and shot at it. It turned out to be a Nissan Almera and fishing business clerk Neungruthai, 29, was hit in the left thigh. Her husband, the driver, and relatives in the back were uninjured. 

 

The husband has promised legal action.

 

Krabi provincial police chief Pol Maj-Gen Santhat Winson admitted a mistake had been made and promised justice for all putting the local police chief in charge of an investigative committee. He said 10 officers were involved in the error. 

 

He said he had visited the victim in hospital. The bullet had been extracted from her leg and she was recovering. Luckily it didn't hit a main artery.

So it was said  "oops my bad" after all what else could be said though he did get the bullet back and will match it up with the officers involved weapons' to just check to who will pay for it all,  IMHO.

Yeah, the Juke is probably one of the ugliest and most recognisable shapes around!

Mind you, I have just seen a Farang at Big C take his trolley to a white Honda Jazz, press the remote door lock and try to get in.  After several seconds he realised that the 'beep-beep' noise was coming from his white Toyota Yaris parked 3 spaces away.

Thats why it is called the Joke

The *least* that General Santhat could have done is to put a *non*-local Police Chief in charge of the Investigative Committee.
