Insults fuel motorbike chase and beat down

A bit of verbal mudslinging led to violent belt swinging, which in turn led to a fall into the mud for two people in Svay Rieng province.

Police say the pair got in an argument with four local troublemakers at a filling station, and when they rode off they were followed and whipped until they wiped out in a puddle.

The aggressors split while the dirtied and dinged-up duo were sent to the hospital by cops who are still on the lookout for the posse of petrol station punks.
