Cutting-edge fighting technique leads to jail

Having an axe to grind is one thing, but wielding one during a nighttime brawl is taking it too far. Two men were seriously injured during such a scrap in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district on Saturday night.

After beers that were meant to take the edge off, tensions instead flared between partygoers, and one man began taking the edge off his opponents. Police intervened, telling the group to bury the hatchet and sending three to court. Axe and you shall receive … prison. KOH SANTEPHEAP
