Drunken man violently avenges stolen T-shirt

An empty clothesline led to a heart full of rage on Sunday in Battambang. Police said our 30-year-old protagonist came outside in the evening to find nothing but clothespins and air.

Swiftly determining he had been wronged, the man proceeded to beat three nearby villagers who he claimed had stolen his laundry – one T-shirt as it turns out – while it was hanging out to dry.

Did we mention he was drunk? He was. Police said it may have affected his decision-making process. He’s now cooling his heels in jail. DEUM AMPIL
