Pictured at the station Nathakorn Namkhot, 47, who is seen initially fighting in the clip with Karanphat Thanakornsaran, 35, before Panuwich Maleehuan, 30, wades in with some heavy blows.
The three men weren’t able to get out of this one with a “Wai”, the station chief issued Nathakorn and Karanphat with 5,000 baht fines each and a 10,000 baht fine for Panuwich all of who were charged with assault.
Karanphat told officers that he and friends had been drinking “after work” and the whole incident was all a misunderstanding.
The altercation between the three was recorded by a Russian couple who heard the commotion and began filming the men before uploading the clip to social media.
