A video clip of minivan drivers fighting while foreign tourists were watching them at a famous souvenir shop in Phuket has gone viral in social media.

The Thalang Police Chief Colonel Pisit Chuenpetch told the Phuket Express today (September 20th), “The incident happened in front of a famous souvenir shop on Thep Kasattri Road northbound in Thalang.”

“Minivan drivers were waiting for foreign tourists while they were shopping inside the shop.
