Norwegian man (Gisle Reikvar) has drunken smash-up with a bulletin board in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

PHNOM PENH - At around 8:30pm on 24 September, a 50 year old Norwegian man, Gisle Reivar, caused an uproar on Monivong Boulevard, Daun Penh district, attacking a CPP bulletin board like a demented man.
He smashed the glass, cutting himself severely, ripped up some bulletins, and then ran covered with blood into the Monivong Guesthouse where he is renting a room.
Image
The whole episode caused quite a surprise on the street and the police were called to Monivong Guesthouse to interrogate the suspect. He claimed that it was all a big mistake and said that he had fallen heavily against the board by accident because he was drunk, and then he became confused and ran away to his guesthouse because he was afraid.

The police took the man to Calmette hospital for treatment, and to investigate whether he was drunk. It is not clear if he will be charged with an offense.

Unfortunately, he is not a tourist, but another shining example of a shirtless expat who gets violent when drunk.
Earlier this year the same guy tried to smash an ATM at Wat Phnom, and he was also accused of assault in Siem Reap in 2013.

What does he need to do to get deported ?

I thought the Norwegians were supposed to be the happiest people?

Maybe that only applies when they are in country. And not on meth.

The man is 50 years old, and last time he was in trouble in Cambodia his mama bailed him out. Enough.

CPP display smashing lands foreigner in court
27 September 2017
A Norwegian was sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday after he was arrested for smashing a glass display cabinet and allegedly destroying the CPP posters inside on Sunday in Daun Penh district.

Huot Chanyaran, Daun Penh district police chief, said yesterday that the suspect Gisle Reikvam, 50, was staying at the Monivong Guesthouse on Monivong Boulevard.

“The suspect has been jailed once before in connection with the destruction of an ABA ATM a few months ago, but was freed after his mother sent money to pay for the damage,
