Bashing in Pailin fuelled by the grapes of quaff

A wine tasting went badly awry in Pailin province on Friday after some verbal sparring over a glass of white veered into full-blown violence.

The 38-year old victim had been arguing with the accused at a wine shop, before heading home for a meal with his family.

Perhaps fuelled by a case of sour grapes, his 33-year-old drinking companion snuck up behind him and bashed him on the head with a stick before fleeing.

Police arrested the accused, while the victim was sent to hospital.
