No charges to be brought against Phuket military impersonator

On Nov 18, four army officers led by chief of peace and order operations Maj Sathit Naikul escorted Prapoj Nunphakdee to Chalong Police Station to question him as to why he was pretending to be a high-ranking army officer.

At the time Maj Sathit declined to name the location where officers found Mr Prapoj but revealed that if he was found guilty of impersonating a military official he could face jail time of up to one year and fined up to B2,000, or both. (See story here.)

Maj Kanan Somrak, an inspector from Chalong Police Station, told The Phuket News today (Nov 28) that after investigating the motive behind Mr Prapoj’s antics no charges would be brought against him because he had done nothing to deceive anyone.

We have checked into Mr Prapoj and he is just a normal resident living in Chalong. We believe this whole issue has been a misunderstanding,” Maj Kanan said.

We have questioned local people and they have confirmed that Mr Prapoj has never done anything to deceive anyone in this area. It appears he just likes dressing in full military uniform.

However, we have warned Mr Prapoj that if he is caught doing this again he will be charged,” Maj Kanan added.

Come on, KCPhuket.  That guy is a bit off the world, and as his village members said, never done any harm to others.
Perhaps a bit 'mental' due to much lead in blood and brain, eating contaminated rice ( pesticides, fertilizers) + using polluted ground water through his water pump?

We already see a increasing number of cases like this. 
Off the road in thinking and handling matters as going with a gun to discuss a matter with a friend, and kill him if discussion not goes as expected.
Police officers bring their gun in free time to bars and start shooting if there is something they not like. etc, etc
