Both matters relate to a gunshot incident which began in the South on Friday (Dec 29) and culminated in him allegedly resisting arrest in Bangkok on Sunday night (Dec 31).

The Min Buri Provincial Court on Monday granted B150,000 bail to the rocker, who was arrested on Sunday on a charge of illegal possession of a handgun, after creating public panic by firing shots into the sky at night in Nakhon Sri Thammarat on Friday.

During the arrest at his home, which was attended by deputy police chief Chalermkiat Sriworakhan, the 44-year-old rock star whose real name is Seksan Sookpimai resisted officers, threatening to shoot them if they tried to enter his locked bedroom while he filmed the exchange on Facebook Live.

They broke the door down and detained him and, as a result, he now faces charges of obstruction of officers doing their duty.

Kannayao Police in Bangkok yesterday took him to court, asking to keep him in prison for the first 12-day legal round of detention as questioning continues. Police intend to interrogate seven witnesses and obtain more information on the singer's criminal record, and the history of the weapon.

Police told the court that on Sunday police raided his house in Sukhaphiban 5, Bangkok under an arrest warrant issued by the Nakhon Sri Thammarat Court. Officers found the handgun in his room. Two gunshots were fired by police in his house before he was arrested.

An initial test also found drugs in his urine, which he claimed was traces of a sleeping pill he had taken. As soon as he obtained bail, police from Nakhon Si Thammarat province arrested him as they probe further what happened at the temple on Friday when he fired the handgun into the air.

Sek Loso yesterday said “Happy New Year” and apologised to his fans, before being transferred to the southern province.

The Nakhon Sri Thammarat Court charged him with carrying a gun in public illegally, and firing a gun in a public area.

Sek Loso said he fired the gun in front of the statue of King Taksin to honour the king at Wat Khao Khun Phanom in Phrommakhiri District.

What we read in Thailand's press is about a 'rock star' who obviously has mental problems.
The guy should not be hold in a police cell but in a psychiatric clinic.
There are some loose screws in his head. 
And that kind of people posses freely a handgun in Thailand?
Amazing Thailand.
And nobody previously noticed that this person needs psychiatric guidance?
