KARAOKE CLUB GOES OUT WITH A BANG
A karaoke club in Phnom Penh's Tuol Kork district was closed down on Monday by order of the district governor after a patron of the club fired his gun into the ceiling of a karaoke room on Friday night, police said. The shooter, who was deeply drunk, was briefly detained but later released. A government letter informed Chhin Samrith, the owner of Dream City karaoke, that his club was being shut down because it had disrupted public order by carelessly allowing customers to bring their guns inside.

Five drunken gangsters were arrested Sunday after they crashed their car into a streetlight in Phnom Penh's Chamkarmon district, Tonle Bassac commune, police said. Witnesses said the gangsters were speeding along Sihanouk Boulevard when they hit the light. The driver tried to escape the scene by putting the car in reverse, but could not move because the car's front tyre was flat.

THUGS POUND BEERS, KARAOKE PARLOR
Three gangsters from Pursat province were arrested on Monday after a drunken rampage at a Pursat karaoke club, police said.

They later threw bricks at the club and beat Duong Mara, a 30-year-old bystander, with bricks and poles. The incarcerated trio said that they could not remember the incident because they drank three litres of white wine and 72 cans of beer while at the club.
