Group of Australian tourists storm into Pattaya police station berating the police and attack a Thai reporter

At 02.00 on November 10, while a group of Thai reporters were sitting in front of Pattaya police station, a tourist named Mr. Timothy John Ward, 49 year-old Australian, stormed into the police station claiming that his money of one million baht and one kilogram of gold were stolen, and that the police were acting like a mafia gang before he attacked Mr. Choktawee Phromsale, a 46 year-old reporter from insizethailouw website, pulling him and causing damage to his camera bag.

Mr WardAfter that, Mr. Ward walked into the police station looking frustrated and yelled at the police officers who were working which made everyone in the police station panic.

While Mr. Ward was yelling at the police, two foreigners who came with him recorded the whole incident, but when Thai reporters picked up the camera and started recording too, they suddenly looked nervous. The police tried to calm Mr. Ward down, but their attempts failed and he  kept yelling like he wanted to insult Thai police before he walked out which made everyone who witnessed the incident feel confused.

After that, Mr. Choktawee, the reporter who had been attacked, filed a report to the police that he was assaulted by Mr. Ward.

It was also reported that Mr. Ward occasionally comes to Pattaya police station to criticize Thai police’s work, but has never been arrested because this kind of incident happens from time to time.

It was noticeable that everything was nicely planned since Mr. Ward brought his friends to record the whole event, and while he was yelling at the police, he was slapping himself at the same time.

The police officers managed exercise self-restraint and did not use force in capturing the man not only due to  Mr. Wards large stature but also because he brought a knife with him, so the police officers were afraid that it might be dangerous, but they will issue an arrest warrant.
