Long arm of law meets clenched fist of drunk

A 32-year-old in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district was arrested early yesterday morning for allegedly taking a drunken swing at a cop.

Police said the man was driving home from a boozy party when he hit a parked car. Cops, responding to a call from the car’s owner, were trying to arrest the suspect when he lashed out, punching an officer in the face.

Undeterred, the police hauled the man to the station, where they determined he was simply too drunk to control himself. KOH SANTEPHEAP
