    After making trouble, he then drove his motorbike to escape to his relatives’ house in Pattaya. But after being notified, the police rushed to followed up to arrest him, and nabbed him in a rental room with no address near Nong Yai temple in Pattaya.

    After his arrest, Mr. Thonsak confessed to shooting at the rival gang, which he said was in retaliation for an earlier fight. Mr. Thonsak explained that his subordinates are a group of teenagers in the Huay Lek community. They had played football with the group of teenagers of the other side of the railroad in the community.

    However, they got into a quarrel with the rival group. But Mr. Thonsak’s subordinates could not fight against the rivals and were beaten up. After they told Mr. Thonsak what happened afterwards, he became furious.

    So he took his gun and drove the motorbike from his house to confront the rival group. But they started throwing many objects at him, so he raked the group with gunfire before driving away. Then he was later arrested by police.

They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    Out of interest what sort of length of time is he likely to serve for this?

    It just seems that this sort of crap happens all the time and that the consequences might be laughable.
