A bank employee fined 1,000 baht for shouting “bomb” at the carpark of Suvarnabhumi airport | News by Samui TimesThe bank employee, identified only as Mr Aroon, drive his car into the restricted zone of the car park of Suvarnabhumi airport on Tuesday. He was stopped by a security guard, demanding a search of the car, but Aroon left a car, carrying a cardboard box and threw it in front of the guard and shouted “bomb, bomb”.

Then Aroon told the guard that there was no bomb in the box.

The guard however reported the incident to his immediate supervisor who then invited Aroon to see the police at the airport’s police station.

Aroon later told the police that he mistook the guard as one of his acquaintances and merely wanted to play a joke with him.

And since the hoax was committed outside an aircraft, police said that they could fine Aroon only 1,000 baht and gave him lecture with a warning that the offence should not be repeated.
