Charges after bullets fly in Pursat restaurant

Two officers who allegedly fired off a few rounds in a nightclub and beat its staff were charged with reckless shooting and causing injuries yesterday, said deputy Pursat police chief Chhorn Sen.

Military police officer Keo Rith and his friend, identified as military officer Captain “Aun”, showed up drunk to the Sla Meas Night Club in Pursat Town on Monday, then pistol-whipped the owner and a security guard, and fired off three rounds after being denied a table.

Police caught up with Rith and arrested him on Tuesday, but “Aun” evaded capture.
