Drunk son comes home to a misunderstanding

Concern for kitchenware almost led to blows between a father and son before Kandal province police showed up to arrest the latter.

After drinking a case of beer and noshing on snacks with friends at his Loeuk Dek district home on Monday, the son went out for more and returned later to hear his pops cleaning up the plates.

Thinking he was breaking them, the angered offspring grabbed a stick, then an axe, to retaliate, but stopped short.

Dad called in police to pull the weapons away and take his belligerent boy to the drunk tank.
