ศูนย์ข้อมูลภูเก็ต Phuket Info Center added that the suspect has been identified as Lim Jia Jie, a 37-year-old Singaporean who was stopped by Thai police corporal Siriphet Kasemul at a traffic checkpoint in Phuket’s Cherng Talay subdistrict.

Lim was riding on a black and red Honda ADV motorcycle without a helmet when he was stopped by Siriphet. Afterwards, when the suspect couldn’t produce a valid license, the police corporal issued a ticket for the 2 offences.

Siriphet then brought Lim to the nearby Cherng Talay police station to settle the fine. It is unknown whether Lim is just a tourist or resides in Phuket.

At the police station, Lim allegedly threw Thai Baht banknotes directly in the face of Siriphet before punching him in the back of the head, causing the police officer to suffer minor injuries.

The Facebook post shared a couple of photos of Siriphet which showcased the minor injuries he suffered at the back of his head.

Seeing that the Singaporean suspect turned aggressive, other officers at the police station restrained him and handed him over to an investigation team to face further action.
