A monk high on Ya Ba caught racing across the north last night was apprehended in his orange robes at a checkpoint.

So the police gave him a urine test – not surprisingly that was not orange. The test revealed the tell-tale purple colour indicating he had taken drugs, reports Manager Online.

Ban Wiang Nong Long police in Lamphun arrested Phra Chainarong Srithanon, 28, at a checkpoint in the middle of the night. He was driving a Toyota Freerunner pick-up at speed.

Chainarong admitted taking drugs and said he was on his way to see a mate in Ban Hong. He said he was a monk attached to the temple of Wat Khamnet Jorm Thong in Chiang Mai.

But he is a monk no more. Following the purple result he was immediately taken for defrocking at Wat Rong Than nearby and then detained by police for prosecution.
