Truck basher to be summoned to see police to acknowledge charges

Prawet district police has issued a summons for the owner of a house, who was seen in a clip posted in the social media bashing pickup truck with an axe, to acknowledge charges against her.

The clip which was posted on Sunday went viral and prompted a flood of criticism against the truck basher.

The owner of the pickup truck, Ms Rotchanikorn Lertwassana, has already reported herself to Prawet police to tell her side of the story to the police.

Ms Rotchanikorn admitted she parked the pickup truck in front of the house near Suan Luang market to go shopping in the market because she believed the house was unoccupied.

Pol Col Alongkorn Srisongkram, the superintendent of Prawet police, said Ms Rotchanikorn could lodge charges of causing damage to her property and illegally carrying weapon in public against the house-owner whose identity was not known.

However, he added that the house-owner could also sue Ms Rotchanikorn for causing disturbance to the other people.

He disclosed that the house-owner used to sue a motorist who parked a car in front of her house, making it impossible for house-owner to get her car out to bring a critical patient to hospital resulting to his death. She won the case in the court.
