A car driver was arrested after he threatened a motorbike rider with a sword during a road rage incident in Wichit.


A photo of the car driver holding a sword near a motorbike rider went viral on social media on Friday (June 21st) Wichit Police Deputy Chief Lieutenant Colonel Atthawat Suwannarat told the Phuket Express.


Law enforcement tracked down and finally found the Thai car driver. He was called to the Wichit Police Station and he told police that there was a road rage incident before both drivers stopped their vehicles on the road. The car driver took out a sword but eventually they both drove away from the area of the incident.

It wasn't stated what happened to the man with the sword.Was he fined or all forgiven no problems and he walked away because in many countries this behavior deserves serious jail time.

Excerpt from the full Phuket Express report linked. 

 

"The car driver is facing charges of threatening another person, carrying a weapon in public without a proper reason, frightening the public, and stopping his vehicle on a road thereby blocking traffic flow."

There are definitely bad actors... but for the most part Thailand is great by comparison to other countries.

 

That statement us about as vague and pointless as it is possible to be.
