Kurt: The police were INFORMED of an incident at 0310. We don't know what time the incident occurred.

A police officer, alone in a pub at 03:10 AM ( thoughts bars are closed that time by law?) only can be there as a private person.
Police mentioning that a police officer was assaulted in a bar after official closing time?
What is a police officer doing privately in a bar after by law official closing time?
Is he not aware as a thai officer of the law about of his position?
To live according the thai laws he has to enforce?

Not filed any charges against the culprit?
So, it was a fight between friends at that time of the day?
