BANGKOK: -- The Thai bouncers caught on tape in Khao Sarn Road at the weekend beating up some English tourists have lost their jobs and received suspended jail sentences.

 

While the four British tourists have received 10,000 baht compensation each from the hotel at the centre of the incident, reported Thairath.

 

The deputy chief of the tourist police and officers from the Chana Songkram station went to inspect the area yesterday after the incident reached many online.

 

Nithithorn Jintakanon of the Tourist Police revealed the details of the attack that occurred out front of the Buddy Hotel. "The tourists had beer in hand and tried to get into the hotel bar," said Nithithorn. "They were denied entry because of a policy of no drinks from outside.

 

But they gained access to the toilets and threw beer around the toilets annoying other tourists who were there. The bouncers removed them and an argument developed with swearing in both Thai and English. This led to the attack in the street".

 

The tourists reported the incident and the two bouncers involved were rounded up. Preecha Pansombun, 30, and Jinanuwat Saidee, 23, both appeared in court and were fined 2,000 baht each and sentenced to two months prison, suspended for one year. Both were sacked by the hotel.

 

The four tourists, who have plans to stay in Thailand one more week, each received 10,000 baht from the hotel. Two men who suffered injuries to head and body were named as Armando Rodriguez and Shaun Angfreet.

So it was perfectly ok for the tourists to do this. Not. First they broke the rules of the bar which are reasonable and second acting like spoiled thugs in the toilets. They shouldn't have got one Baht and the bouncers shouldn't have been fired.

Not so sure about this. They definitely went over board. But the Brits don't deserve my money, that's for sure.

Suspended sentence does not mean "got jail". A 2000 baht fine also pathetic under the circumstances.

Also i cast much doubt on the claim the tourists were throwing beer around the bathrooms if they were in fact compensated by the hotel owners.

 

Its good the men lost their jobs. But its not beyond the realms of possibility they'll take only a couple of days to get another similar position

Story about throwing beer !!made up !!

 

 

 

 

It might be, easy enough to think they did something to provoke the bouncers though. I doubt they're innocent victims.

Thais will make up the most idiotic lies when they are in the wrong, so the throwing of beer is nonsense because if it were true then not a baht in compensation would have been handed out. 

 

As for the two bouncers who were caught, the others escape "justice", they will be back at the same hotel next month.

 

Thai law?  Laws books are found in a Thai library under fantasy.

If it happened at all. This is what Thais and other nationalities often do when they're clearly out of order, they attempt the 'well I done the crime, but only because they done a crime first' ploy.

 

TiT. The probability is that the truth was something else.

 

Still, a suspended sentence is a joke. More evidence that the grinding wheel is turning against foreigners as Thailand tries to pretend they are all responsible for Thailand's ills. This clip will get widespread airing across the world. Combined with all the others, there probably isn't any way that Thailand will not reap a bitter harvest no matter what figures TAT come up with.

Agree totally, the tourists were asking for trouble, they got it & why should they be treated as "victims" in all of this?? Should have been deported & treatment of bouncers should be reviewed..

Sounds a lot like drunken tourist with an attitude. Not the first time that I have seen this. The Thais might have gone overboard but the Brits started it.


I am surprised that people think these kind of things don't happen. Drunk people often make trouble nothing new about it.
