  • CCTV: Large male "Celebrity Fighter" attacks female pump attendant in Hua Hin

    CCTV: Large male "Celebrity Fighter" attacks female pump attendant in Hua Hin

    A man who is believed to be a well known celebrity viciously attacked a female pump attendant.

     

    She was only doing her job but ended up with a hemorrhage inside her ear, deafness and a possible perforated eardrum.

     

    Saowaluck, 31, went to the Hua Hin police last night armed with CCTV evidence from the PTT station in Khao Tao. 

     

    The CCTV showed the man arguing as she listened while sitting. Then, completely unprovoked physically, he attacked. 

     

    Saowaluck told Sanook that when the customer arrived in a Honda Civic she had been discussing about changing the price board with a male colleague and did not immediately notice that she had a customer.

     

    A woman in the car accused her of chatting and not doing her job. The couple were angered further when a sign with a magnet was put on the hood of the vehicle and they claimed it was done noisily..

     

    After putting in 700 baht's worth of fuel the man got even more cross that Saowaluck replaced the filler cap in a noisy manner damaging his car in retaliation for being criticized. 

     

    She didn't respond to this claim and just went and sat down. 

     

    The large man - who she recognized as a celebrity fighter - would not let the matter rest. He acted as if to strike her with his hand.

     

    Then he swiped her over the left ear causing her to buckle. He then turned on a male colleague but because she had deafness she could not hear what was said.

     

    The couple then drove off and she reported the matter to her manager.

     

    At the hospital she was found to have internal bleeding and a check up would be needed in a few days to ascertain if she had a perforated eardrum. She was given antibiotics in the meantime then went to the police.

     

    The police told Sanook that they would issue a summons and were waiting on a medical report to determine the seriousness of the lady's injuries. 

     

    The male colleague told the media that they were only doing their jobs and he had never experienced this sort of thing before. 

     

    He wanted the man prosecuted for what he did.

     

    He said the man looked like he was going to attack him, too, before the couple drove off into the night.

    A Bryde's whale emerged from the water in the Gulf of Thailand on Monday (July 27), wowing tourists who were passing on a boat trip.

     

    The giant female, named “Wan Dee” (Good Day), was accompanied by her baby, which was swiftly given the name “Wan Yud” (Holiday) after the day on which it appeared.

     

    Pictures of the whales were posted on Twitter by Forest for Wild Life and instantly drew attention from Thai nature lovers.

     

    The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources said Wan Dee could often be spotted swimming in the Gulf of Thailand in search of food, and that this was her third offspring.

     

    Between April and August, the Gulf is teeming with anchovies and tiny shrimp that lure hungry whales in search of a meal.

    Hua Hin was the latest place in Thailand that fans of the English Premier league club Liverpool celebrated their team's first top flight triumph in thirty years. 

     

    Local dignitaries and the head of "The Kop Hua Hin" fan club set off a parade of thirty vehicles around the seaside resort starting and finishing at the Khao Takiap football stadium. 

     

    It was the day after Jurgen Klopp and the Reds received the EPL trophy after defeating Chelsea 5-3 at a deserted Anfield. 

     

    The Reds supporters in Hua Hin had spent several tens of thousands of baht on a foreign made replica EPL trophy that was paraded along with a Champions League replica.
