The Same Incident from a different Source !!!!

The motorcycle taxi rider who kicked the German tourist in the face has told Thai media that he was helping out the cops.
He saw that the tourist was attempting to flee the scene – so he kicked him in the head.
He regrets it now but he was provoked.
Pattaya police fined Sunthorn Saengkham JUST 500 baht for assault and fined the German 400 baht after they locked up his rented bike.
But today (Friday) the department of Land Transport are set to get involved in the drama – they may decide to take the licence of the motorcycle taxi driver away if they feel he has been dealt with leniently.

There's been a bit of blowback for this dropkick motorcy taxi guy. The DLT are raining a load of woe on him for apparently operating an unlicensed and unregulated private bike for hire scam where he was masquerading as a legit motocy taxi and are talking upwards of 5000 baht in fines and possible jail time.

I wonder if anyone is in Pattaya at the moment and done a recent head count at the regular motocy taxi stands?
