Addict, denied money for his fix, breaks town

A drug addict gave Kratie town villagers a fright on Wednesday after a fight with his father sent him into a rage.

Police said the man had argued with his dad after being refused $10 for “dinner”.

Suspecting his son wanted to buy more drugs, the dad refused, setting off the firestorm.

Turning his attention from home, the 25-year-old grabbed a bottle and began going through town smashing property and threatening locals.

Luckily, no one was injured before police hauled him off.
