Booze and bovines: not a good mix for bikers

Colliding with a cow while biking buzzed is probably not the best way to impress your father – particularly when he’s director of the provincial department of environment. But being knocked unconscious in such an incident on Tuesday temporarily precluded a 19-year-old man in Kampong Chhnang town from worrying that his progenitor would, well, have a cow. The young man was sent to hospital, and police noted both man and beast were at fault: The teen shouldn’t have been driving while drunk, and the cow shouldn’t have been allowed to roam freely.

Off-key brawl puts end to upbeat tune and croon
Four men eager to showcase their solo singing talents at a Battambang town restaurant reacted rather violently to three other men hogging the stage on Tuesday. Police said the two groups had been drinking when the quartet decided they’d been subjected to the trio’s stylings for long enough. The two groups fought furiously, destroying the restaurant’s property, which distracted the owners and allowed other patrons to slip out without paying. Police arrested the three successful crooners and are hoping to arrest the four who missed out on the spotlight. Rasmey Kampuchea  
Buzzcuts of different kind prove barber’s undoing  
After a small drug bust in Kampong Cham town on Monday, police are hoping they’ll be able to follow the trail of meth crumbs back to a major dealer. The pair of teens arrested for carrying two packages of ya ma on Monday told police that a local barber had sold them the goods, and sure enough, police found 14 packages of meth when they raided the barber’s shop. They are looking for a woman the barber claimed was his supplier. Nokorwat    

Man buries the hatchet into the back of his rival
A 24-year-old man attending a wedding in Mondulkiri province’s Keo Seima district on Tuesday learned that a grudge-bearing fellow guest had chosen not to bury the proverbial hatchet but rather to sink a literal axe into his back, seriously injuring him, while everyone was dancing. Police arrested the axe-swinger the next day. Kampuchea Thmey
