Dude who smeared his spit and groin funk in BTS elevator jailed 15 days

A 32-year-old man will spend 15 days in jail for intentionally spreading his dank fluids inside a public elevator during a viral outbreak, footage of which horrified the nation.

The unidentified 32-year-old man was convicted and sentenced in Bangkok’s Pathumwan Court on Tuesday, four days after he was caught on camera touching his tongue and reaching into his shorts before running his funk-encrusted fingers across the interior of an elevator at BTS National Stadium, including its handrails and buttons. 

The man was arrested Monday and charged with maliciously causing a public nuisance.

The footage of the man doing his foul deed, originally shared by Facebooker Win Weerachai, went viral since Friday afternoon and prompted the skytrain system to launch a mass disinfection effort of its facilities.
