KRABI: -- The co-owner of the "@Thonglor" pub and restaurant in Krabi was shot dead in a club after he reportedly refused to pay for a broken drinking glass.

Police said Suriya Chansukon, 48, was shot dead inside the Number One dance club in Krabi province in the early morning of Tuesday by his acquaintance Sompop Kongphakdee, 31.

Sompop is said to have broken a glass and asked Suriya to pay the fee for him. When the victim refused, Sompop shot him in the head, police said.

After the shooting, Sompop rushed to his car, drove away and returned to the club in an attempt to pretend he hadn’t been at the scene.

Breakages are very common in the bar and hospitality industry which is why bars / nightclubs will order boxes of new glasses on a regular basis.

It's just a basic cost of doing business, wear and tear if you will.

The problem here is that it's seen as a chance to rip someone off for extra money.

I see the recent outbreak of Thainess appears to be spreading around the country at a rapid rate.

Reading the detail, in tbis case the guy who broke the glass shot someone else for not paying for a glass they -- the victim -- didn't break.

I'll admit, the journalism was a bit shit, but the guy was not the owner of THIS bar, so nothing backfired on him. The shooter asked the victim whom he was aquainted with, to help him pay for the stuff he smashed and the guy rightly refused.

Based on the outcome, I'm not sure he chose rightly . . .

This just illustrates the danger in this country of stepping out of line,be it in a pub or on the road. My wife is quite paranoic ,with good cause,when we are on the road and get cut off or some guy is being an ars****** as she says he probably hasa machete or a gun under the front seat....... just move on to the next idiot.
