2 May 2017 PATTAYA-
A British tourist pleaded with furious locals to 'put me down' when they tied him up after he ran across their homes in his underwear.
The 'delirious' unidentified man was spotted scuttling across the roofs of houses in Pattaya, Thailand, on Tuesday night.
The man, who had blood streaming from cuts on his face and arms, sent corrugated iron roof tiles crashing to the floor as he shouted incoherently.
Outraged villagers eventually caught him and strung him up using rope to tie his hands and feet together.
Police arrived shortly after as the man pleaded in a London accent with locals to 'put me down' and 'get off me'.
But officers poured water over his head 'to try and calm him down' before he was arrested and carried into a police truck and taken to Banglamung district station.
The bizarre scenes as the man tried to wriggle free while confused locals laughed at him were filmed by a Thai news reporter.
Villagers said they believed the Brit was drunk and they could smell alcohol on him when he rampaged past their houses at 11.30pm.
Onlooker Nat Charaporn said: 'Why are the foreigners so crazy? We see them a lot, doing the strangest things. I want to know, are they like this in their own country?
