New Year ne’er-do-well takes out angst on lights

One man was in dim spirits for the New Year when he was arrested for destroying 56 decorative holiday lamps in Siem Reap’s Slakram commune on Saturday.

Police say the 31-year-old drove down National Highway 6 cutting wires, downing poles and smashing fixtures before police came to arrest him for destroying public property.

The angered electrician claimed the decorations were causing blackouts at his workplace, and he was taking out his anger against provincial officials who had OK’d the extra lights.
