Cambodia News (Siem Reap): A 30-year-old British man, JARED MARTIN DOWNER, who is staying at the guesthouse Reap Chilled Backpacker, was arrested after he attacked a tuk-tuk driver in Stueng Thmei village, Siem Reap. The suspect tested positive for drugs [methamphetamine].
The British man seriously injured Oeuth Samnang, a 27-year-old tuk-tuk driver, when he attacked him for an unknown reason. The victim was taken to hospital for treatment. The suspect is being detained for questioning and police are preparing his case to submit it to the Siem Reap court.
Edit: Another report states that at about 1:50 pm, on 1 November, 2019, the foreigner, Jared Downer, hit the 27-year-old tuk-tuk driver on the right cheek and right shoulder with a wine bottle, causing extensive bleeding. It also says that the British man was under the influence of drugs at the time of the attack.

"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.
