The incident happened near a bike rental shop run by the Frenchman, named by police as Gerard Pecherstorfer, 63, and his wife Suvan Paiwansao, on Sirirat Road. 

Ms Suvan told police that the argument was about a bike rental agreement between them and the tourists.

The Frenchman are in deep shit, shooting a gun twice in the air, not a very smart move.

 

A good Thai friend of mine are doing similar rental businesses here in Pattaya and he don't use/have a gun.

 

He will likely be booted out after serving time, unless he got cash, lots of cash.

Didn't a couple of tattoo guys accidentally shoot a passerby? If I recall correctly nothing much happened to them in the end.

No evidence that document was used to travel, in fact very unlikely.

He used it as collateral to rent a bike and ran away when the renter discovered it was an old document.

(I don't believe bike renters have the right to hold customers passports)

PHUKET: -- A 62-year-old French expat in Patong has been charged for pulling a gun out and firing it in the middle of a fight with a Russian tourist today (Feb 7) after the Russian had left an expired passport as collateral for a rented motorbike.

 

Frenchman Gerard Pecherstorfer, who has lived in Phuket for 14 years, was taken into custody by Patong Traffic Police on 50 Pi Rd (Hasip Pi Rd) around noon after police were informed of shots fired in the neighbourhood.

 

Mr Pecherstorfer, who according to his Facebook profile was a member of French Foreign Legion from 1986 to 2002, had pulled out a 9mm handgun amid a fight with Russian tourist Sergery Antonov, Patong Police Chief Col Chaiwat Uikum told The Phuket News.

 

The incident tracks back to on Jan 19, when Mr Antonov, from Moscow, and a friend rented a motorbike from Mr Pecherstorfer’s wife, Col Chaiwat said.

 

“They rented a Honda PCX for one day and left Mr Antonov’s passport as collateral,” he explained.

 

The men did not return the motorbike until Jan 26, but then paid the rental fee and asked to continue to rent the bike, Col Chaiwat explained.

 

“When the men returned today (Feb 7) to continue renting the bike, Mr Pecherstorfer’s wife said they couldn’t as by now she had realised that that passport given as collateral had expired,” he said.

 

The wife said they had to give her a valid passport, and Mr Antonov, who celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday (Feb 6), said he would go back to his hotel to fetch his current one.

'Mr Pecherstorfer, who according to his Facebook profile was a member of French Foreign Legion from 1986 to 2002, '

 

 

So he has a personality disorder.

I wonder whether Pattaya or Phuket will get the title of 'SE Asia's Chicago'

The pendulum swings frequently.
