Pattaya police station chief Apichai Krobpetch got a call about a Danish man making a lot of noise in an apartment room in Soi 17 on New Year’s Eve.
They rushed to room 807 where Henum Morten, 53, was trying to electrocute himself with a cord from a fan.
However the cops had taken the precaution of cutting the electricity first so there was no immediate danger to life.
The room had Thai booze bottles and glass smashed all about along with other things all over the place.
Henum was naked on the bed and they tried to put some clothes on the large man but the great Dane was not having that and resisted all attempts at clothing.
As the police tried to calm the situation the unruly tourist bit the leg of one of the good Samaritans who was aiding the constabulary. Fortunately he was not badly hurt.
This commotion was too much for a Nepalese neighbor who had been watching the melee. He strode forward and believing the Dane to be possessed of a spirit unwrapped the rosary beads from his neck and proceeded to hit the Dane with them multiple times to cast out the evil.
The assembled party were aghast at this scene and stepped in to stop the Nepalese performing his impromptu exorcism.
At this point they grappled with the struggling Dane and bound him hand and foot with cord.
It took ten police and Samaritans some time to carry the heavy man out to a waiting Thesakit pick-up, reported 77Jowo.
He calmed down somewhat at Pattaya police station where it was decided he was possessed of a different kind of spirit – he was charged with drunk and disorderly behaviour.
He was then taken to hospital.
