Deputy Chief Inspector of the Phuket Tourist Police Lt Col Urumporn Koondysumrit yesterday (April 18) confirmed, “Last Saturday (April 14), Sakoo police received nine complaints about acrylic paint being splashed onto cars at Nai Yang Beach last Friday.

“After making investigations police believed that the man responsible was 29-year-old Payak “Tum” Samniangmai. He was apprehended today (April 18),” he said.

Payak told police that he was a painter and decorator and that when he joined the Songkran festivities at Nai Yang Beach he splashed acrylic paint on some cars.

Most of the victims said that their cars had been splashed with blue paint while they passed the front of a hotel just before Nai Yang Beach. They also said that they believed it was a group of men that had carried out the act.

Payak told Sakoo Police officers, “I apologise, I did this because I was drunk. It understand that this affects people and Phuket’s tourism image. I will try to find a way to clean these paint splashes if I can. I have learned a serious lesson and I will not do this again next year.”

Payak has been charged with damaging other peoples’ assets.

So let’s see if he really means it. Paint damage can be repaired, just have to take the cars to a car repair shop and pay them money. The perpetrator abound of course pay for the damage he has caused. So if he is really sorry, he can pay up. Might take him some years to pay it all off, but that’s a good lesson for him and others that there are consequences for your actions.
