From his shirt, he may be an employee of "Bongs" bar.

Not to condone violence, but what started the dispute, I would like to know

He should have taken a downer. :stir:

Never trust a grown man in short pants.

"Chilled backpacker guesthouse" ohhh the irony.

Not many facts on the case - but bottling a local is a sure recipe for a spell in the real chiller.

Small world, I saw this guy for a few nights on koh rong samloem and had some drinks with him when I went to visit there a few of weeks back, never saw him drink wine and didn't seem the type to bottle someone, he was always joking and having a laugh with the locals/expats there even if he was a bit hooched up on beer, is there any witnesses or CCTV? The Article States the Tuk Tuk driver was attacked for "Unknown Reasons", early days I know, but it aint addin up in head

I worked with a guy who was reliable, responsible, charming and great company but that didnt stop him beating hell out of a guy with a baseball bat in a pub car park, in Ruislip.

If the tuk tuk driver was just showing typical tuk tuk driver behavior, maybe that by itself made him cross the line?
