A female bartender in Pattaya attacked an Englishman after the the farang refused to pay for, what he called, an expensive beer.

An angry Rungnapha Pleumjai, 43, admitted to hitting an elderly Brit at Patsy Beer Bar with her shoe, after he refused to pay full price for his beer. His reason was that it wasn’t a “convenience store price.”

“I told him this is a beer bar not 7-Eleven, and he said he wouldn’t pay his bill,” Roongnapa told police. “We charge THB90 for a beer, but he tried to pay us THB30.”

Now, if you drink beer from 7-Eleven, you know that even the cheapest can is about THB38, it’s never as low as THB30.

The Brit, identified as David Alaw Lodge, 63, suffered from a bruised forehead and eye socket, Sanook reported.

Roongnapa was charged for assault leading to injury of another person.

Pattaya police blamed the woman for damaging the reputation of Thai tourism. Yet no one said that the Brit damaged the reputation of British people, nor was there any discussion of him being charged for refusing to pay his bill.

Siamchon News shared this video of Lodge when he was taken to the police station for questioning.

We’ll bet that Roongnapa and Lodge both needed a beer after these shenanigans. Let’s just hope they paid full price for them.

  1. Wow a dispute over a price of a beer, that certainly deserves talking about in the midst of an assault. Shame on all Brits. Can you stick to the news and leave your opinions out of things?
