Drinking sessions … no place for a cleaver

It's amazing the way a friendly drinking session can turn into a living nightmare, unless, of course, you regularly read blotter.

And so it was on Tuesday, when a 27-year-old farmer tipped a few back with mates in Kandal’s Kien Svay district.

Police said that the booze-up segued from a friendly bull session into an argument, which segued into our protagonist leaving and, naturally, returning with a cleaver.

After hacking a companion in the arm, police found and arrested him shortly thereafter. DEUM AMPIL
