Taxi driver arrested in Pattaya for stealing tourists’ luggage

Posted Image


A 52 year old taxi driver has been arrested by Pattaya police after attempting to do a runner with a Korean couples luggage.

The tourists had enjoyed a lovely holiday in thailand and were all set to head back to the airport for their journey home. They loaded their bags up into the taxi and began negotiating a fair price from North Pattaya to Suvarabhumi airport.

Not happy with what he was hearing, the taxi driver thought enough was enough, no more negotiating, and took matters into his own hands by driving off with the couples luggage.

Italian Shows Pattaya How to Pizza – with his fists

Posted Image

An Italian man enraged by the quality of his pizza busted his hand in a brawl with its makers at a Pattaya pizzeria, police said Monday.

Police were called Sunday night to the I Love Pizza Art restaurant where they found Henri Gabriel Elfgang, 71, with an injured hand. His wife, a Thai national, told police the staff beat him and broke one of her husband’s fingers.

Pattaya’s police chief said the Italian man was dissatisfied with his pizza’s quality and asked the restaurant staff to bake it again. After the second order also failed to meet Elfgang’s standards, an argument broke out which escalated into a fight, according to Col. Apichai Klobpetch.

“They were arguing back and forth, and they were fighting,” he said.

He added that initial news reports which alleged the staff ganged up on the Italian were false. Instead, Apichai described it as a mutually enthusiastic melee.
