A group of foreign motorbike racers were reportedly warned of being a public nuisance before a fight with locals broke out on Bangla Road in Patong.
A viral video clip of people fighting on Bangla Road went viral in social media last night (February 15th). TPN media has decided not to air the clip due to material that may disturb sensitive viewers.
The Phuket Provincial Police Commander Major General Sermpan Sirikong told the Phuket Express that the incident involved many foreign motorbike racers who were causing a public disturbance at the end of the Bangla Road. Locals and police were trying to warn them to cease and desist but they did not listen.
The foreign motorbike racers allegedly pushed local Thai residents first before the locals got angrier and the fighting started. Patong Police arrived and finally stopped both parties involved although most of those present fled. Locals told associated Thai press that the motorbike racers were French.
The Patong Police are continuing their investigation.
