An elderly American man who has apparently been living rough on Pattaya beach for years has finally been nabbed by immigration police.
Scott Phillip, 67, was arrested by immigration officers on Pattaya beach close to Mike Shopping Mall on November 15, after several complaints from locals that Scott had been sleeping rough on the beach for years.
Scott told officers that he had been in the kingdom for roughly 20 years and his passport and visa had long since expired, noting that he had been living on the streets without a job for many of those years.
Once at the police station officers provided Scott with food and water and are currently liaising with the United States embassy to arrange the elderly gentleman’s deportation.
His name will be added to the countries blacklist banning him from entering Thailand for ten years.
