Mob violently bounces Aussies from Kangaroo Bar

PHUKET: -- Two drunk Australians were beaten down by a mob on Phuket’s famous party street, Soi Bangla, early yesterday.

At about 1:30am Patong Deputy Superintendent Akanit Danpitaksat arrived on Soi Bangla (map here) to find both Australians sitting in the middle of the road covered in blood.

Having only recently arrived in Phuket, the two men named by police as "Antony Sounder", 26, and "Brad Trub", 30, suffered serious injures: Mr Sounder had a broken leg and Mr Trub had a large gash over his eye.

“They went out and got drunk. They talked, walked around and lost control of themselves,” Lt Col Akanit said.

The bouncer at the Hollywood Discotheque did not allow the pair to come inside due to their level of intoxication, so Mr Sounder and Mr Trub made their way to the Kangaroo Bar. There, the men allegedly attacked an American with an ashtray, Lt Col Akanit said.

The pair is also understood to have attacked other tourists in the bar with a chair, and to have slapped one of the bar girls, Lt Col Akanit said.

Other patrons of the bar reacted violently to the duo's aggression, attacking them and leaving them seriously injured in the road.

Mr Sounder and Mr Trub were charged with public intoxication, causing bodily harm and causing damage to property, said Lt Col Akanit.

I would say it is the hub for drunks! There are drunks everywhere but a higher concentration in that place!!

Interesting story. Made so by the fact that the "mob" was not clearly defined.... Would be curious to know if it was other farang patrons at the bar, or local Thai guys. Looks like they would have pissed off both groups, with the ashtray attack on the American and slapping the bar girl. Impressive to break the guy's leg in a street fight, must have used some furniture on him. And after seeing the photos, it seems to once again solidify the link between excessive tattoos and mindless drunken violence. Regarding their injuries, som nam na !!!!!!!!!

I'm quite sure the problem is with every nationality, when they left Oz I am sure they were very nice people, the drink affects people in different ways! Hope they realize what they did and realize there life could have been at risk!!

In my three years working at the Australian embassy from 96-98 I visited Patong regularly to assist Australian warships visiting Ao Makham and anchoring off Patong. During that period I am ashamed to say I saw some of the worst behaviour I have ever seen from Australian servicemen! I visited Patong again as a civilian last year and I was absolutely disgusted at the appearance and behaviour of young Australian "Bogans" there for a week of alcohol abuse and depravity.

 

It seems Australian tourists are quickly developing a reputation for being the most aggressive and rude nationality across the world. One of the reasons I chose to leave Australia and live in Thailand was the seemingly rampant disregard to the rule of law by the young people of Australia.

 

Disgusting behaviour by two Australian men who clearly do not know when they have had enough to drink. They must have been truly wasted for the bouncers at Hollywood to refuse them entry judging by the state of some of the people I have seen admitted over the years!

 

Makes one ashamed to be Australian!

They come act like fools, they think that it's ok to disrespect people and act like they are better than the local people.  This happens in this country too often with both Brits and Aussies.  They should take away there visa exempt status to visit the country.  Make them get tourist visas to come here.

They where warned by Thais & farang alike - they didnt heed the warning!

 

Tattoos have got nothing to do with it! NO more than singlets or board shorts do!

Once more alcohol - a legal drug - brings aggression to the surface.

 

That dreadful illegal drug Canabis brings out the "Peace Man and attacks of the giggles"

 

What a topsy turvy world we live in!

I agree with everything you say, except being ashamed to be Australian..  Can't be morally responsible for fellow countrymen.

This is not an issue restricted to Australians or Brits, plenty of americans, europeans and others also imbibe too much and lose control, do stupid things. However, young Australians seem more and more hellbent on drinking themselves "stupider" than they already are with their binge drinking and their ridiculous behaviour, they are not an embarrassment to Australia, but an embarrassment to humanity.

Seems that a pair of bullies got a bit of their own medicine. I wonder if they will learn from this lesson?
