A 35-year-old in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district was arrested on Sunday for trashing his rented room in a drunken rage.

Police intervened when the owner of the room reported that his tipsy tenant had used a stick to smash the mirror in his room.

Although dissatisfaction with your reflection isn’t a crime, police were compelled to make the man write a written promise to compensate for the damage caused by his drunken narcissism.
