A machete-wielding farmer in Kampong Cham wound up in hospital on Tuesday after picking a fight with a police officer.
After a drinking session landed the farmer in trouble with his 41-year-old female neighbour, he came to her house brandishing a machete.
When a policeman was called in to stop the disturbance, the farmer turned on him. A violent scuffle left the farmer seriously injured and under arrest.
But while his injuries have kept him out of a cell for now, police say they will not forget. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
