The attack, which according to CCTV footage took place at 6:27pm on Thursday (Nov 10), occurred after pump attendant, Usaman Satapoh 32, refused to serve motorist, Pariwat Ponsamak, 30, because he did not switch off his engine as asked.

The incident went viral in Phuket social media circles late on Thursday night when CCTV footage surfaced showing an angry motorist pulling up at a Shell petrol station in Mai Khao in his black Honda sedan while the pump attendant was serving another driver.

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

Both men went to Tha Chatchai Police Station following the incident and Pariwat apologised to Mr Usaman. Police were told by Mr Usaman that he did not want to press charges so both men were released.

However, yesterday (Nov 11), Tha Chatchat Police Chief Col Prawit Suthiriangaroon ordered Deputy Superintendent Lt Col Watcharin Jirathikanwiwat to bring both parties back to station after comments were made on social media demanding justice for Mr Usaman.

Once called back Pariwat was charged with assault and fined B500.

Col Prawit said that he pressed the charges against Pariwat to set an example for the general public to think hard before they take matters into their own hands.

500 thb fine. Is this a thai joke, or is it exclusive a extra contribution for the police foundations?
I hope the pump attendant takes this matter to civil court, he should be compensated. 

This Col Prawit should pay a working visit to Singapore to learn how to handle matters more appropriate.
Does Col Prawit really think that the thai public will think hard before take matters in own hands when they read about that 500 thb fine? This is a joke, yes? hahaha
Col Prawit, is he thai?
