    Thai man in apparent psychosis causes a scene in Pattaya, nearly a dozen police calle

    A Thai man who reportedly has had prior psychiatric issues and was recently in rehab suddenly ran amok and wreaked havoc inside his house in Pattaya last night.


    The man clad only in dark leggings was destroying his property inside his house on Soi Paniad Chang in Central Pattaya when the Pattaya police arrived at 6 PM on Tuesday, November 15th.


    Ten officers equipped with iron rods and tasers blocked the front gate of the house and tried to verbally calm the unidentified man down but failed. The man, who was in apparent psychosis, then started to go on a rampage and smash things again, forcing the officers to step up their measures by using a taser.

    Unfortunately, the taser also failed to subdue the man, thus officers needed to move in on him and used iron rods to immobilize him. The disruptive man eventually calmed down after 40 minutes.

    Police asked the man’s friend about his behavior and were told the man used to suffer from a mental issue four years ago. The unnamed friend said he thought the man was better recently but blamed several habits for causing his behavior, such as smoking cannabis and watching violent news clips. TPN notes this is the opinion of the friend and not a licensed medical diagnosis.


    The names of those involved in the incident were withheld by police due to the sensitivity of the situation.

    Pattaya police coordinated with Banglamung Hospital to take the man into their care and find the exact cause of his psychosis.

    Awww. Shame.

    Nice try anyway, ten officers with iron rods and tasers.

    It truly is quite pitiful just how utterly ignorant the Thai are about modern psychiatry and mental illness.

    Their stupidity is quite systemic.

    They should have given him a heavy beating with those iron bars..... not give a tickle up with a tazer.

    Yes, Cyril, such things happen the world over but here the ignorance is systemic but even worse the absence of appropriate care and the route to it is the real shocker.

    “ Why you care, na, not your ploblem” is of course the standard response.

    Agreed.

    It was a bunch of thuggish morons anxious to get the thing over asap and move on to something more lucrative

    It says absolutely nothing about the mindset of 70 million people.

    You need to move on.

    I find myself in total agreement with Cy's post, must be summa in da water, back to beer from Sunday when footie starts.

    A visit to the poor inmates chained to their beds in a C Mai psychiatric ward tells you the state of play.

    Reincarnation, superstition, ngas, demons, ghosts, green men lead to a skewed view of mental illness and handicap.

    As possibly the last Thamesmead Droog in LOS I'd sooner have a chemical cosh than a real one.

    He calmed down after the iron bar beating or was he just unconscious?

    doesn't take much to upset a chickenhead

    the wife probably served him a warm beer by mistake. that's usually enough to get 'em to kick off.
