That guy looks like a perp on the run from a Florida felony warrant, doesn't he?

Is that an Irish flag tattoo on his right arm?

The press is reporting that the arrested American overstayer "Robert Edward Sheare, Jr." is 44 years old. That would mean he was born in late 1973 or early 1974.

Sheare is not common name in the USA. Shearer is much more common. "Sheare" may be a misspelling by the Cambodian police or press of his actual surname, "Shearer."

Here's where it gets interesting. A Robert Edward Shearer, Jr., is currently wanted by law enforcement in Osceola County in the great state of Florida. He was born in March 1974. He is six feet tall, 200 pounds, brown hair, brown eyes, and is identifiable by a tattoo on his right arm. All of which seems to match the photo of the perp in Cambodia. Shearer is wanted for the felony charge of battery on a law enforcement officer. He jumped bail in 2015.

So the question is, did the Cambodian police really stumble upon this guy by responding to a domestic disturbance with his wife, and then they discovered that he was an overstayer? Or did they arrest him because Uncle Sam tracked him down and asked that he be arrested on overstay charges so they can send him back to Florida to face trial for punching a cop?

That's most likely. But he could have kicked a firefighter or spat on a paramedic or bitten a bus driver. The statute is pretty broad.

Idiots.... when you are breaking a law, last thing you want to do is draw attention to yourself.
Water quenches the thirst, alcohol releases the truth.

WTF? Khmer cops are so much more angelic?

US cops aren’t perfect. But they have the thankless job of responding when called. Despite risk to life and limb. All to prevent the bad people from doing evil things. Made even more difficult when some idiot is actively encouraging people to assault the police.
