Intoxicated American Arrested after Damaging Sedan Window with a Rock in Wichit

Wichit –

An intoxicated American man was charged after he hit a sedan glass window with a rock in Wichit on Thursday (April 11th).

The Wichit Police were notified of the incident at 5:30 A.M. by Mr. Tharathit Na Phatthalung, 33. He told police that a foreign man had hit his sedan’s glass window with a rock while it was parked on Chao Fa Road opposite a hotel in Wichit. He did not know the foreign man.

Police quickly arrived at the scene to find the blood stained damaged sedan. A shoeless foreign man was found nearby. The intoxicated foreign man was taken to the Wichit Police Station.

He was later identified by the police only as Mr. DENNY, 46, an American national. He told police that his unidentified friend had allegedly forgotten a mobile phone in the sedan. He used a rock to try to break the glass window of the sedan to get the mobile phone back. However, it turned out that Denny did not know the sedan driver. The Wichit Police told the Phuket Express that Mr. DENNY seemed to have lost control of his mind while they were talking with him, showing signs of confusion and paranoia.

He was charged with damaging property belonging to someone else. He is now in custody and the case will be sent to the court on Friday (April 12th). His case was also reported to Phuket Immigration with a suggestion to revoke his visa. Mr. DENNY had entered Thailand on March 24th last month with a 30-day tourist visa.
