Men try to prove sobriety by fighting R’kiri cops

Traffic cops in Ratanakkiri’s Banlung district were left battered and bruised on Monday, after three grumpy drunks allegedly violently disputed the results of a traffic sobriety test.

The moto-mounted trio were pulled over, tested by police and informed they were to be fined for being drunk.

In an incident which probably did little to support any claim of sobriety, the trio proceeded to punch the policemen, only to be detained by district police.
