An overly sociable drunk was badly beaten in Pursat town over the weekend after being mistaken for a thief. Police said the man had staggered up to a resident’s house and knocked on the door.
Mistaking his knocks for the sound of a burglar breaking in, the man sprang out of the house and gave the drunk a serious drubbing. Police came and took the man to the station where, when he awoke from his stupor, he professed his innocence and was released. KOH SANTEPHEAP
