Tourist Tries to a Stop Fight Between Bar Girl & Her Ex.. (Big Mistake)
Pattaya One News reports that at 12.30am, on the morning of Jan 17, Pattaya police received reports that a foreign tourist had been attacked and injured in the Sawasdee Beer Bar on Soi 5 bar Pratamnak, Pattaya. The bar owner told police that the victim was a regular customer who had tried to intervene in a heated argument between a bar waitress and her ex-husband.
The American tourist known only as Bob, tried to prevent the husband attacking the girl provoking the ex-husband to turn on him instead, punching him to the ground and then kicking him before other bar staff and customers intervened. At that point the ex ran away. Medics treated a sixty-seven-year old American for injuries to his head
Commentary: Ahhh, I've lost track at how many times we've seen similar stories from Pattaya. In the movies the hero may come to the rescue but in Pattaya the hero usually get's his ass kicked for trying to be the good guy. My advice? Sit back and drink your beer, eat some popcorn and enjoy the show. It's up to the locals to call the cops or intervene. In other words: "Don't try to be a fucking hero!"
