Italian Man Has a Meltdown on His Balcony in Pattaya, Blames Marijuana

Pattaya —

An Italian man suspected of being high on marijuana hurled several items including a refrigerator at people below his balcony in Pattaya. Luckily, the man reportedly harmed nobody.

Officers from the Pattaya Police Station received a report of a foreign man who was on a rampage and threw items from his second-floor room at people on the street at 10:30 PM yesterday, May 3rd. They rushed to the scene with Sawang Boriboon rescuers.

The authorities arrived at the Charlie Place Hotel in Soi Buakhao in the Nongprue sub-district of Banglamung district. A crowd of onlookers was watching the suspect, Mr. Antonio M, 43, of Italian nationality, from a safe distance as he hurled several projectiles from the hotel second-floor balcony such as a television, a vanity table, or even a big refrigerator.

Pattaya Police described that the man was in a state of frenzy and highly uncooperative. Eventually, police and rescuers had to storm his room and take him down. The authorities told The Pattaya News that they found three sachets of marijuana, rolling papers, and marijuana paraphernalia inside Mr. Antonio’s room. He was arrested and taken to the police station.

Police interviewed the Italian man’s Thai girlfriend Ms. Nid, whose real name was withheld by the authorities. She said she and Mr. Antonio had been in a relationship for two months, and her boyfriend had never behaved frantically like this.

The foreign boyfriend smoked a lot of marijuana yesterday and became paranoid, thinking that someone was trying to harm him, according to Ms. Nid. He locked the front door and stood panicking on the balcony before starting throwing objects at people. Ms. Nid then called for assistance from the police.

Police said one motorbike was damaged by the man. He is facing legal charges at the local police station and has reportedly blamed the incident on temporary psychosis from marijuana, although this hasn’t been medically proven cautioned police and other factors could be at fault.

Cannabis was decriminalized in Thailand last June but has been a highly polarizing political issue and final laws have been held up in Parliament due to opponents and supporters being unable to see eye-to-eye.
