An American tourist who complained about his food was chased and attacked by an angry chef and staff from a Phuket restaurant on Monday afternoon.
The 44-year-old holidaymaker, named only as “Connelly”, had been eating at the Capri Restaurant in the Karon district of the island when he complained about the dish served to him.
He tried to leave on his motorcycle when a scuffled erupted and the American was seen in a tangle of punches with the staff.
Revenge was quickly served up when the entire workforce of the restaurant – including four waitresses – chased the middle-aged tourist in shorts and a vest down the street.
One furious local was seen on CCTV trying to hit the barefooted American with a red flag and another had a wooden plank swinging above his head.
Police arrived at the scene and arrested the American.
