An unsuspecting rider had no fall-back plan

One drug user evidently forgot to tell his buddy to hold on when they whipped a U-turn in an effort to avoid cops in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district yesterday.

Approaching a mirrors-and-helmets checkpoint with no mirrors or helmets, the duo swerved to avoid them.

The rider, however, slipped off the back, and officers chased him down to find him carrying seven packages of meth.

His pal rode off, but the unluckier of the duo was cuffed and given a ride on a police moto.
