Poipet man a big baby when baby plan nixed

One man’s bad aim was another’s good luck in Poipet on Tuesday.

Police said a man had been pleading with his ex-wife to reunite, suggesting that most foolproof of plans for solving marital woes – having a baby.

The woman’s brother, however, disapproved, saying the ex was no good.

An argument ensued, ending with the brother slugging the agitated ex, who in turn drew a gun and took a shot at the brother, but thankfully missed.

The siblings reported the incident to cops, who arrested the man.
