Pattaya, the 6th of June 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 3:00am on Sunday, Captain Jamrat Thongjinda (Pattaya Police Investigator) was notified of a shooting incident along Soi 1 Pattaya Beach Road. At team of investigators was immediately dispatched to the incident.

 

At the scene, the Sabai Empress Hotel in North Pattaya, investigators observed the hotel CCTV footage immediately as the offender was alleged to have still been on the premises. Locating the clearly intoxicated foreigner police swooped to arrest him. Hotel administration later identified him as Talaat Majed Hawatt [21] an Australian national.

Allegedly Mr. Hawatt had come to Thailand on holiday to visit his uncle, Mr. Rooney Hawatt [45] who had been staying on the 3rd floor of the Sabai Empress Hotel for some time. When police moved to arrest him he was still in possession of the Mouser 6.35mm gun and 4 live rounds.

 

Officers inspected Mr. Rodney’s room which was found to have two bullet holes in the front door which Mr. Hawatt allegedly created in an unknown intoxicated rage. Mr. Rodney explained that his nephew had gone out for a drink and when he had returned he was in an inexplicable alcoholic rage before running to get the handgun and shoot the door.

Mr. Rodney had no idea where the shotgun had been procured from, although Pattaya Police believe it was purchased off an unknown Thai dealer. Resisting arrest and continuing to be obnoxious towards his uncle and police, Mr. Hawatt was remanded in custody and charged with unlicensed gun possession and shooting a firearm in public without authorisation.
