Lt Col Somsak Thonggleng of the Patong Police has confirmed that 31-year-old Thomas Rapp is currently being treated for a blood clot to his brain after getting intro a fight with security guards from an unnamed restaurant on Bangla Rd.

“A security guard told us that Mr Rapp and his friend Mr Christian Graile, 26, has been eating and drinking in the restaurant. At around 1:30am they asked for their bill which there was some dispute over.

“The waiting staff could not understand Mr Rapp because he was drunk so they called the security guards to assist them. While they were discussing the bill Mr Rapp smashed one of the security guards in the face and a fight ensued.
