A man has been arrested after brandishing a gun and threatening people sitting by the side of the road along Ratvithi Road Soi 2.

Sapol Jindatham, 44, from Mae Sai, Chiang Rai, was arrested in his apartment 100 metres away from where the incident occurred.

According to police people who were sitting by the side of the road drinking beer yesterday called to report a belligerent man bandying a gun around the soi. On arrival the man had left, but police tracked him 100 metres to his apartment where he was arrested.

The man was found to be in possession of a gun, but there were no bullets in it.

Once arrested the man told police that he had walked past the people in the soi and some had been rude to him so he walked back to his apartment to get his gun to return to teach them a lesson, without any intention of harming anyone.
