The incident went viral in Phuket social media circles last night when CCTV footage surfaced showing the angry man pulling up at a Shell petrol station in Mai Khao in his black Honda sedan while the attendant was serving another vehicle.

The angry motorist exited his car, bearing Phuket licence plates KorThor 5577, and kicked the attendant in the back, which forced the attendant’s face into the side of the car he was attending to, injuring his chin.

According to the CCTV footage, the incident happened at 6:27pm.

In the post that went viral, Naphat Chanpasu explained that the pump attendant, who was not named, refused to serve the motorist because he did not switch off his engine as asked.

“Police were already involved last night. Both parties got to talk and apologised to each other,” Tha Chatchai Police Deputy Superintendent Lt Col Watcharin Jirathikanwiwat told The Phuket News this morning (Nov 11)

“I was told it was just a misunderstanding. No one has filed a complaint, but today we will ask the victim to come in to see what he wants to do,” he said.

Hours after incident, the angry motorist, Siri Kwanmongkol, posted a public apology that he did not hear the request to switch off his engine as he was listening to music.

Lucky the motorist did not have a gun or he probably would have shot the attendant, this is Thailand after all, not as bad as the USA yet but trying hard to get there

Another disgruntled mental disturbed person.
And 'it' all walks freely around.

I am sure there is a thai law that oblige motorist to switch of their engine while refueling.
The request of the pump attendant was normal.
 The lame excuse..I was listening to music .. of the violent attacker should not have been followed by police mediation.
The pump attendant should have filed charges immediately with all the CCTV prove. 
How the RTP can talk here about a 'misunderstanding' shows how the RTP functions.

The way the pump attendant was attacked was so bad and criminal.
Imagine this driver would do the same thing in a aircraft to a cabin crewmember? ( possible, because he is mentally ill)
Than he would have been arrested after arrival next airport.

Here I miss the support report of the gas station employer regarding his pump attendant.
At least should for safety reason ban the driver of KorThor 5577 of refueling ever at that gas station.
