Khao Sarn Road beating: British tourists get compensation, Thai bouncers jail

The Thai bouncers caught on tape in Khao Sarn Road at the weekend beating up some English tourists have lost their jobs and received suspended jail sentences.

While the four British tourists have received 10,000 baht compensation each from the hotel at the centre of the incident, reported Thairath.

The deputy chief of the tourist police and officers from the Chana Songkram station went to inspect the area yesterday after the incident reached many online.

Nithithorn Jintakanon of the Tourist Police revealed the details of the attack that occurred out front of the Buddy Hotel. “The tourists had beer in hand and tried to get into the hotel bar,” said Nithithorn. “They were denied entry because of a policy of no drinks from outside.

But they gained access to the toilets and threw beer around the toilets annoying other tourists who were there. The bouncers removed them and an argument developed with swearing in both Thai and English. This led to the attack in the street”.

The tourists reported the incident and the two bouncers involved were rounded up. Preecha Pansombun, 30, and Jinanuwat Saidee, 23, both appeared in court and were fined 2,000 baht each and sentenced to two months prison, suspended for one year. Both were sacked by the hotel.

The four tourists, who have plans to stay in Thailand one more week, each received 10,000 baht from the hotel. Two men who suffered injuries to head and body were named as Armando Rodriguez and Shaun Angfreet.
