PHUKET: -- An American tourist and a Phuket tuk-tuk taxi driver have shaken hands and made peace after they were each fined B2,000 for fighting over a B200 tuk-tuk fare in Patong early yesterday morning (July 16).

 

The fight broke out at about 5am in front of the Poppa Palace hotel in Soi Jintana off Rat-U-Thit 200 Pi Rd.

 

Maj Eakkachai Siri of the Phuket Tourist Police called in regular officers from the Patong Police after he was notified of the fight, but by the time police arrived the tuk-tuk driver, Burin Sukhontharot, had left the scene.

How much did the American really have to pay ?

The tuk tuk driver seems cheerful enough on the picture.

I'm intrigued by part in this charade played by the mysterious Miss Emma, a UK citizen found on the ground during the kerfuffle.
