In a fight in Pattaya over a 9,000 baht go-go bar bill, a South African breaks his head open.

In an altercation over a 9,000 baht drinks tab outside a go-go club on Pattaya’s Walking Street in Chon Buri province, eastern Thailand, last night, a South African traveler fractured his skull. He agreed to pay when the police escorted him to the station.

Officers at Mueang Pattaya Police Station received word that a foreign tourist had been hurt on Walking Street in the middle of the night.According to CH7, police discovered 40-year-old “John” of South African descent with blood streaming down his face and a broken forehead.

The police were notified by a group of security guards from a go-go bar that the foreigner had refused to pay his 9,470 baht drink tab.The guards reported to the police that after getting the bill, the tourist allegedly crumpled it up, flung it at them, and verbally abused them. They claimed that the inebriated tourist charged forward and attempted to put a security guard in a headlock.

The guards claim that the tourist was hurt because he slipped and struck his head on the steps as they were trying to restrain him because of his large size.

Before being led to the police for questioning, the injured tourist received first aid on the scene. The visitor decided to settle his 9,470 baht bill after speaking with Pattaya police officials.

To be fair to both parties, the police stated they would investigate the CCTV to determine whether the bouncers were telling the truth regarding the source of the tourist’s injury.After all, a well-known YouTuber from abroad was slapped by a bouncer at a nightclub on Bangkok’s notorious Khao San Road in February of this year. The assault started when the visitor took a bottle of water he had assumed was free. He was charged with taking it by the guard.

After receiving a settlement offer of 50,000 baht from Club Khaosan’s owner, the victim withdrew his case.
