At 4.30am, on the morning of November 1, Pol Capt Wuthikorn Ploadprong was leading a check-point unit in front of Makro, on Pattaya North, Pattaya.
As part of a routine inspection a white Toyota Camry, driven by twenty-four-year old Mr Surasak Damrong. Forty-year old Mr Techpat was in the passenger seat. Both men appeared to be intoxicated and the driver tested at 110mg percent.
In reaction to this Mr Techpat began shouting and attacked police corporal Boworn Hatthachot from behind and attempted to punch him.
Other officers managed to restrain the suspect and he was quickly hand-cuffed. Techpat then began shouting that he worked at Channel 9 News and was familiar with high ranking police officers. He said, ‘no body should mess with him.’
As notes were being taken Pol Capt Wuthikorn Ploadprong received a mysterious phone call from somebody claiming to be the Superintendent in Provincial Police Region 2 and who was insisting be allowed to take over the case.
Pol Capt Wuthikorn declined this generous offer and the two suspects were taken to Pattaya police station for processing and to await trial.
