Fight over fares not necessarily a fair fight

Countinuing the trend of helmeted men wielding batons, a furious motodop dealt out a thrashing to a taxi driver whom he believed had slashed his tyres in Takhmao on Saturday.

With complete disregard for etiquette, the motodop, 31, parked near a taxi rank and began vying for the cabbies’ customers.

After leaving his bike unattended, he returned to find his tyres slashed. Assuming it was a nearby taxi driver, the motodop launched into him with the baton, leaving the victim in hospital and himself in jail. KOH SANTEPHEAP
