Glen Bailey, 43, was taken into custody at Q Sauna on Jomtien Sai 2 Road in Tambon Nong Prue, Pol Lt Gen Sompong Chingduang, commissioner of the Immigration Bureau, told reporters yesterday (Aug 22).

He said British authorities had asked Thai authorities for cooperation. The suspect is accused of the attempted murder of a 17-year-old.

Bailey, who won an MMA title in his hometown, allegedly shot the teenager in Hampshire on Feb 10 last year. The youth was left paralysed from the waist down.

Bailey had entered Thailand on April 3 through the Ban Pakkad checkpoint in Chanthaburi on a tourist visa which expired on May 2. He gave an address in Pattaya.

Gen Sompong said immigration police began the search for the man at gymnasiums and fitness centres. They believed that as an MMA fighter he would exercise regularly to keep fit.

He was charged with overstaying his visa and held at Pattaya City police station, pending action from British authorities for his extradition.
