There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place.

If he was on a borrowed moto, drunk, going too fast thru downtown, he was probably asking for trouble. The locals in SR truly dislike barangtourists riding their own motos, which I understand, cause some of the newbies do not really understand how traffic flows, and are driving too fast. I almost got hit by a tourist couple up there myself one time, and they were totally out of sync with their surroundings changing speed and direction suddenly, confusing me and everyone else on the street.

Used to be illegal for tourists to rent a bike but like many other things (constructing inside Apsara zone, loud music, etc.) all this has been suspended in the run-up to elections....

Haha, I looked and looked. Pisses me off because we know there's video footage out there somewhere. No way a Barang and a Tuk-Tuk driver got in a scuffle and nobody took a video.
