Eager to make friends, man makes enemies

Eager to make friends, man makes enemies

When you’re blind drunk, you often want to be everyone’s friend. Equally as often, those less drunk don’t feel the same way.

One man in the capital’s Meanchey district learned this the hard way when he awoke to a very sobering assault charge on Friday morning.

The night before, the man, already inebriated, approached six men drinking beer on the street and demanded they let him join in the fun. Unimpressed, the men gave him a can and urged him on his way.

When the drunkard kept hanging around, the men asked a security guard to escort him away. Reacting with anger, the man hit the guard in the face with his beer can. He was arrested. Koh Santepheap
