Officer finds himself at wrong kind of hoedown

A drunken cop took a hoe to the head in an argument over a noisy bike in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district late on Tuesday.

Police said the officer had driven his moto to a massage parlour, and was revving the bike outside.

A man emerged from the parlour and tried to stop him, complaining about the noise.

The man retreated to the parlour, only to return with a hoe and then struck the cop multiple times in the head.

The suspect fled, but was arrested the same day. NOKORWAT
