Battambang teens get rowdy in park

Nineteen Battambang youths went a bit far in their troublemaking but were still let off easy by the police who arrested them late on Friday.

Getting many calls about the kids making trouble in the provincial park, cops rounded up the six girls and 13 boys and took them to the station.

A urine test confirmed that over half of the boys were on drugs, and, after a bit of “education”, everyone’s parents were called in to sign a promise to keep a closer eye on their offspring.
