A video shared by Siamchon News shows two belligerent Russians at an alcohol checkpoint then being processed at Pattaya police station.

The man – dressed in a black “skull” t-shirt and with a long pony tail – is filmed sitting in the driver’s seat.

He says in Thai that he does not recognize the authority of the police and wants soldiers to come. He claims the police are breaking the law.

The patient officers finally get him out of the Toyota Altis and into cuffs and both him and the woman in the black dress – now in the passenger seat – are taken into Pattaya police station.

Siamchon News said that the man had at first refused to open the door of the car and had then repeatedly asked for the name and rank of the arresting officer. In a 30 minute standoff he claimed that he knew many cops at the station.

Pictures at the police station showed officers putting the man into the cells.

Then women are called to help handle the female Russian involved who tries to bite her captors before she too is put in the cells.

Officer Dutsadee who was in charge of the checkpoint said that the woman had been driving before they swapped over. So both were arrested.

She is expected to be charged with drink driving while the man will face charges of resisting arrest.
