Cop response time saves drunkard from beating

Members of a Sihanoukville mob wanted to inflict a little damage of their own to a drunk driver who crashed into 10 motorbikes, but were stopped when police came to make the arrest.

Leaving a KTV on Tuesday heavily intoxicated, the motorist pinballed into the scooters, and was halted by gathering bystanders.

Fortunately only two women sustained light injuries and the cops cut the chaos in time to take the canned crooner downtown to face charges instead of citizens’ fists.
