    " The security guard at the court said prisoners were in the jail holding cell. He heard the sound of fighting before hearing a gun shot. One of them who was carrying a concealed weapon had fired a gun shot at officers. It is unclear how the weapons got into the court at this time.

    The three prisoners who were still in chains got in a bronze Izuzu D Max pickup truck waiting in front of the court with an unknown accomplice and sped away."

    When you're up for sentencing in court, there's an armed officer standing beside you. If you're declared guilty, cuffs are slapped on you immediately.

    You're led out of the court through the doors in the courtroom that lead down to the lockup.

    If you've a bit of money, there's a holding area where they do the video judgments and the cops will let you sit there until the session is over.

    Otherwise, you're put in a big cell, sans cuffs in the basement of Pattaya court. While I'd say escape isn't possible, I'm guessing money buys keys.

    And guns.

    One of them who was carrying a concealed weapon had fired a gun shot at officers. It is unclear how the weapons got into the court at this time.

    Bizarre, truly bizarre. I mean, just where the fuck does he think he's going? Cambodia is the only exit and that will have to be clandestine. Money talks but shooting at cops and stabbing staff moves it all into a different category and I doubt the usual graft will be available to facilitate an escape.

    Perhaps he prefers a quick death to a long, slow, miserable one.

    Bonnie and clyde escape from Pattaya Court

    Getaway truck found after American’s Pattaya court BREAKOUT

    Thai police have found the truck used by an #American alleged drug dealer and his girlfriend in yesterday’s brazen #shootout escape from a court where they were facing #execution.

    Bart Allen Helmus, 39, is accused of stabbing one of the guards before his male accomplice Noi Ton Nintet, 41, allegedly shot the same man in Pattaya on Monday afternoon.

    Helmus, along with his Thai girlfriend Sirinapha Wisetrit, 31, and the third accomplice Noi, were seen dashing out of the cell door with their chains still clamped to their legs before jumping into a waiting bronze Isuzu pickup truck.
    Today, police said they had tracked down the car but the manhunt for the trio was still ongoing.


    Bart Allen Helmus, 39, was appearing at court in Pattaya, Thailand, with his Thai girlfriend Sirinapha Wisetrit, 31, after they were arrested in July over drugs offences

    Monday’s CCTV showed one of them brandishing a 9mm pistol at officers, while another wrestled a guard to the floor.
    The officer appeared to be writhing around in agony following the altercation

    Footage from the parking lot showed the trio bounding off, one still holding the pistol, where they got into a waiting bronze Isuzu pickup truck.
    Courts of Justice spokesman Suriyan Hongwilai told the Bangkok Post that Noi shot police officer Captain Thanameth Potiphan and Helmus stabbed him.
    Captain Thanameth was rushed to hospital in a critical condition.
    The trio were facing charges that carried a maximum of the death sentence, Suriyan told the Bangkok paper.
    Police described the fugitives as ‘extremely dangerous’ and set up checkpoints and roadblocks in the the area.


    Lieutenant General Nanthachart Supamongkhol said the U.S. Embassy had been contacted and all border points were on alert.

    Well, they got Bonnie. I'm guessing she made a wise choice to get caught now.

    AMERICAN WHO FLED PATTAYA COURT KILLS HIMSELF, 2 ACCOMPLICES ARRESTED
    By Tappanai Boonbandit, Staff Reporter -November 6, 2019 12:57 pm

    SA KAEO — A manhunt for drug suspects who staged a dramatic breakout from a Pattaya court came to an end Wednesday with one of the fugitives committing suicide and police arresting the other two.

    Bart Allen Helmus briefly held his wife and accomplice Sirinapa Wisetrit as a hostage at gunpoint as police were closing on them in Sa Kaeo province before turning the gun on himself.

    The other suspect, Noi Nilthes, also surrendered himself to the police on the same day.
    Bart goes out feet-first

    Three different stories from 3 different sources. Truthfully the one prag put up seems the most logical to me.

    Well he's either dead or he's wishing he was.

    Who cares, waste of fucking oxygen if you ask me.

    I doubt it. Probably just bodily gasses expelling themselves.

    Helmus was hospitalized in serious condition, while his wife's injury was less serious, he said.
    Still not clear if he is dead or not according to recent articles.
