A video clip is spreading through the internet showing a farang getting beaten by Thai men. The beating reportedly happened in the Marine Plaza, after the drunk farang broke a snooker cue and refused to pay for damages. Police are investigating.

PATTAYA – March 30, 2013 [PDN]; Police are investigating a 40-second video clip posted online that shows a group of Thai men attacking a foreigner. A caption states the brawl had just occurred in the morning, at the Marine Plaza in south Pattaya, Nongprue, Banglamung, Chonburi.

The clip shows three to four Thai strong men chasing and hurting a white man until he falls on the floor. Someone seems to try and stop it, who was wearing a green waist coat of a taxi motorbike driver. He tries to restrain them by talking to a man called “Moo” wearing black T-shirt.

But theThais did not stop their beating as they shouted loud insults at the farang. Then they grabbed a helmet on a nearby motorcycle basket to throw at the foreigner before they separated.

According to witnesses at the incident, the reason for the thrashing was because the farang went to play snooker, and accidentally broke the cue. But when the parlor owner asked him to pay for the damage, he refused and quarreled with the female owner. This led to his beating.

On March 31, the alleged beating victim, Mr. Stuart Mezes Lewi, 58 years old, a former British marine, came to see the police of Muang Pattaya police station. He was accompanied by his Thai wife, Mrs. Kesuda Lewi, 35 years old.

Mrs. Kesuda told the police that her husband just came from drinking with his friends on Walking Street. It was morning, and he was still drunk. But he felt hungry, so he told her that he would go out to eat. But not long afterwards, she heard that he got beaten, but she did not know why.

The authorities have also detained two young men who appeared in the video, Mr.Prasert (surname withheld), 25 years old; and Mr. Wonsathorn (surname withheld), 19 years old.

They confessed that they had beaten the farang man, but it was because he had been about to hurt a Thai woman. They tried to stop the farang, but he got violent and tried to hurt them back. So they got into a quarrel, and fought against the farang in self defense.

Authorities have questioned witnesses at the scene, and discovered that the foreigner had drunk beer at the bar, and walked and struck property at the scene. Then the damage occurred and the farang started haggling with the shopkeeper, who was a Thai woman. The white man then started breaking and throwing properties in the shop.

So in retaliation the belligerent farang was beaten by the Thais, which was filmed by someone and posted on the internet. Police will continue to track down all the men shown in the video to investigate again, because the images of Thais beating a foreigner negatively affects tourism.

Even though the Thais said the farang victim was insane because he was drunk, what the men did was against the law because they ganged up on him. The authorities will continue to seek to provide justice to all parties.

Again it only shows how much thai men hates farrang, instead of calling the police, the two young men beats up a 58 old drunk man, kick him in the head when he is down, bash a helmet in his face, still while the old man is on the ground. Wauw, the 2 thai men must be really proud of themselves??? A real man doesn't beat a man on the ground for a broken cue and a thrown banana. I have no respect for stupid thai like that.
The farrang is also an idiot, and should pay and apologize for his stupid action to the lady.
The thai is way too eager to fight with drunk farrangs, and they are normally many on one guy, what a shame they dont think ahead and what a bad rumor they give the rest of the good guys here in Thailand :-(

To find these men, you only have go down to the beach opposite mikes mall and you will find them as they also operate as jet ski scammers. Moo is one of the leaders of the gutless gang.

EASILY avoided (a few baht for broken cue), don't be a belligerent drunk... this will happen to you anywhere on the planet not just Thailand (being British or being Thai nothing to do with it)
