A US man caught spray painting graffiti with a female compatriot had a simple message for other tourists contemplating breaking the law in Thailand:

Don’t.

Clay Ternberg, 28, and 24 year old Nicole Gollen (names transliterated from Thai) face jail and fines for damaging a pick-up and walls in the Sampeng area of Bangkok.

They were caught in Pattaya. An accomplice has already left Thailand.

They have apologized and said their high jinks were as a result of being drunk.

Clay said the Thai police will catch you and will prosecute.

Thai Rath said that four victims had been paid 10,000 baht restitution each. One expressed his satisfaction with their arrest, apology and the settlement.

They now face three years in jail and or a 6,000 baht fine. 

They will be handed over to immigration after that case is settled, deported and blacklisted. 

In a video it was explained that they did the graffiti in tribute to a deceased friend.
