Surin bar owner from UK attacked by foreign biker gang in turf war violence

A well known foreign sports bar owner had 18 stitches in mouth and head wounds after a group of Outlaw bikers attacked him and others in the “Monkey House” in Surin.

Lee Buil needed hospital treatment and is now recovering from the trouble that started Friday then continued on into Saturday.

Lee, 57, from Hull was formerly known in Pattaya Soi 7 and has been in Thailand for about twenty years.

He said that Surin is usually a peaceful place but a bunch of Outlaws have recently opened a bar called Cross Pistons.

He said the bikers came into the Monkey House on Friday to intimidate people.

“They only wanted trouble and we didn’t serve them”, Lee told Thaivisa. “Then on Saturday they came back and had a go at me, throwing everything in sight at me”.

He said they were using cues, bottles and what he termed as an “asp” – an extending telescopic truncheon used by police in the UK amongst others.

Lee was a policeman between 1976 and 1979. Later he ran a windscreen company.

Extensive damage was done to the bar – around 60,000 baht – and girls were harassed, he said.

The story has been reported on the BBC and other foreign news media including in the USA.

“Someone had to take a stand, “said Lee who said that now the story has been featured widely on Facebook the police and army are involved in bringing the foreign biker gang to justice.

“Since it broke on Facebook they are on the case big style,” he said.

Earlier his wife had gone on Facebook to complain about police inactivity.

Lee said that all the Outlaw gang members were foreigners, no Thais were involved.
