CityNews – Following the viral clip which saw netizens condemn a man who hit a Food Panda driver after accusing him of cutting in front of his Vespa, the man in question turned himself in to police and admitted to wrongdoing.

The Food Panda driver had already been to the police station to report the incident, but until now the other man involved in the altercation had not stepped forward.

Yesterday, 6th February, police invited Sitthipong Udomting, 30, driver of the Vespa, to Chang Phuak police station.

Upon arrival, Sitthipong admitted to wrongdoing and said that he would pay 6,000 baht in damages along with the legal fine of 500 baht for bodily harm and destruction of property (he had grabbed and damaged the victim’s crash helmet).

Sitthipong said that he wanted to apologise to the victim as well as society at large for his behavior and accepts all blame. He insisted that he was completely sober and that it was a matter of situational anger which got out of hand following a misunderstanding.

The Food Panda driver accepted the apology and the matter has now ended.
