Recommended Posts

Siam Rath reported on a chase and subsequent capture of someone believed to be on drugs. It happened on the normally quiet seaside island of Koh Chang.


Cops got a call about a man in a Nissan March.


He refused to stop and raced for Kai Bae where he was cornered by a gelato shop.


The police parked two trucks to block him in but this created 2 km tailbacks.

It was two hours before the man was in custody - he had been brandishing a knife.


His car had no narcotics at all.


Just prescription meds.


It appeared he was going without his meds.

The media called him a mental health patient in their headline. 


The whole thing took 2 hours to resolve.
