The arrest follows Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos filing a formal complaint with the Chalong Police at 8am yesterday (Dec 29) reporting the woman defacing the road near Nai Harm Lake, in Moo 7 Rawai.

That complaint followed the woman, 34-year-old Anastasyia Serebryanskaya, being recorded on video in the act of painting on the road, with the video posted online.

In the video, a foreign woman explains to Ms Serebryanskaya that it is illegal to paint on the road. Ms Serebryanskaya replies in Russian then leaves in a red Toyota Vios that also bears registration stickers that allow the vehicle to be driven into Malaysia.

Police tracked down Ms Serebryanskaya to her accommodation and placed her under arrest last night (Dec 29).

At Chalong Police Station, Tourist Police explained to Ms Serebryanskaya the charge against her.

Must have been the heat to make her not thinking in advance about her action.
But hey, why was she arrested and locked up?
A fine + charge for cleaning the road, would that not have been enough?
The multi billionaire National Park leopard killer and his cooks we never locked up for many more serious crimes! Time after time we see 'money & influence justice' in Thailand.
