Beer garden gunslinger heading back to prison

A Kampong Cham man evidently thought he was in a Wild West saloon when he pulled out a gun on Monday at a beer garden before threatening patrons.

The 31-year-old gunslinger is an ex-con, recently released from jail for robbery. He was drinking in town with another cowboy when he became embroiled in an argument with some other customers.

Instead of solving things peacefully or through a good old-fashioned brawl, he pulled out a gun, causing his foes to flee. The cops detained him until he sobered up and then packed him off to court. Deum Ampil
