PHUKET: A man suspected of an attempted murder in Phuket last year was arrested by Lampang police on Saturday after more than a year on the run.
But it wasn’t all woe for the suspect, 41-year-old Bangkok resident Prasop Homhuan.
Prasop told officers escorting him to Phuket from Chiang Mai that despite his arrest he was very excited – at the prospect of flying on an airplane for the first time in his life.
Prasop is wanted for the attempted murder of a man in a Chalong karaoke bar last year.
Around 1am on May 30, 2009, he was drinking with friends at Lek Karaoke on Chao Fa West Road in Chalong.
Later, a man with whom Prasop had a dispute, Pramot Kaewliphon, entered the bar and sat down behind him.
Several drinks later, Prasop turned and saw Pramot and a loud argument broke out, culminating in a fist fight.
