Drinks and stones broke more than bones in Ratanakkiri’s Kon Mom district on Sunday.
Two brothers had settled down for a spot of midday boozing at home when, inexplicably, they went at each other with rocks.
The worse-off brother was badly injured in the head, while his sibling ran for the woods. Police picked him up later that day and sent him to court.
He said the argument was sparked by a disagreement over schoolwork.
