A cop in Hat Yai in Thailand's south fired at a ten wheel truck that cut in front of his vehicle.

Then he chased the terrified driver for ten kilometers, reported Thai Rath.

The truck driver Suchart Kaewklom, 41, only realized it was a policemen when he stopped to report the matter at a police outpost.

His side man had already had enough - Damrongrak Yenjai, 58, was so scared that he fled into the forest rather than stick around.

But despite shots being fired the matter was sorted out amicably without any charges being made.

Suchart apologized for his poor driving while the cop said sorry for losing his temper and shooting at him.

The cop was not named but is based somewhere in the three troubled provinces bordering Malaysia.

Our picture shows Suchart pointing at his truck.

how about attempted murder

 

Unfortunately this now sends a message that it is ok to use a firearm to settle bad driving issues

I wonder if the police are held accountable for any missing bullets or weapons assigned to them? If not then they can easily be selling them encouraging more crimes?

The last time the discharge of a firearm on a road from a vehicle at another vehicle was discussed on this forum, the charge was only punishable by a fine of a few hundred baht and they let the perpetrator keep the firearm, assuming that he has the appropriate license. So even if he had been charged, he would still have got away with it.

They have to buy their own gun and ammo !

Well if that's the case its theirs to do with as they wish I guess. This cop is obviously shell shocked being stationed in the troublesome south close to the border. If I was a cop there the gun would be something I would not go to bed without.
