A 36-year-old man pulled a knife on authorities who had earlier impounded his motorbike outside a Battambang pagoda on Monday.
The pagoda head reported a suspicious moto with no licence plates parked inside the pagoda to local authorities who took the vehicle to the police station.
The owner returned later in the day to find his motorbike missing and began threatening local monks.
The cops soon arrived and the man allegedly pulled a blade and swung it at them. The man was immediately detained.
