Fiery passion leaves man singing the prison blues

Love, according to Johnny Cash, is a burning thing.

But one drunkard’s attempt to follow the man in black’s advice landed him in a jail cell on Tuesday in Kampot’s Teuk Chhou district.

His wife reported him to the police, who arrested the hothead that day.
