PATTAYA – July 7, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 2:30 a.m., Pol. Lt. Col.Vittaya Yeunyong, Inspector, Pattaya police station, Chonburi province, was notified that a gang of teenagers were shooting guns at the parking lot of “Warm Up Pattaya,” a well-known pub & restaurant off Third Pattaya Road, Central Pattaya, Moo 9 Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung.

Lt. Col. Vittaya rushed to the scene with a police team that included Pol. Lt. Vitsanu Chaisuwan, Deputy Inspector, and a volunteer police team.

When police arrived at the scene, they saw more than 100 young people standing around in the parking lot in front of the pub, but the pub had already closed. When the teenagers saw the police they hurried to ride their motorbikes to escape, so the police blockaded the area to arrest all the teenagers present, because they wanted to check them for guns or illegal items.

Some teenagers rode their motorbikes through the blockade and escaped to Central and North Pattaya. But others were stopped by police, who arrested more than 50 people. Most were teenage boys, but 3 teenage girls were also arrested. The police searched each motorbike and person, but did not find any illegal items.

Initially, one arrested teenager claimed that a gang fight broke out between the gang Soi Siam Country Club and gang Na Kleu, which twice fired gunshots in the air to threaten their rivals. Both gangs then rode away on motorbikes to escape before the police arrived.

After the fight, the pub hurried to close. People still in the pub hurried to get to their motorbikes outside to go home, but when they saw the police they were afraid of being arrested so they tried to escape.

Most of teenagers arrested were between ages 14-17. It appeared many had been drinking alcohol earlier, but only a few were age 20. All the teens said they were Pattaya students, and had been persuaded to drink liquor since the next day was Saturday, and they wanted to have a holiday away from their parents.

The police sternly warned the teens about the dangers of underage drinking and driving at night. Parents were then contacted to pick up them their children. Parents were also required to bring documents showing ownership of any motorbikes, before releasing them.
