Deadbeat gets more than he gambled for

A gambling addict in Kampong Chhnang town was arrested on Tuesday after he allegedly beat his wife when she refused to give him money to support his habit.

Police said the man had demanded 100,000 riel (about $25) for the card game, but was rebuffed by his wife.

Incensed, the deadbeat hubby grabbed a broom and struck her in the back of the head.

Luckily, a neighbour called the cops, who hauled the man to court.
