A pair of road warriors got their comeuppance in Phnom Penh on Monday night. The duo’s motorbike struck a car, whose driver demanded $100 for compensation.

The men paid up but not without a grudge. As the car tried to drive away, they gave chase on their bike, breaking its rear windshield with hurled rocks.

Police swooped in to arrest them just as an angry mob was about to beat them up.
