A unidentified naked male foreigner who was found walking near Pattaya Beach in the early morning was arrested and taken to the Pattaya police station.
Captain Sonthaya Khonsap from the Pattaya City police told the Pattaya News that they were notified of the incident by stunned local residents near the Central Pattaya Beach in Nongprue on Saturday morning near dawn (July 29th).
They and the Pattaya News arrived at the scene to find the naked male foreigner aged around 50 walking and talking with himself loudly. Police were trying to talk with him but unable to understand him and the man continued to rant about foreign political issues.
It took about 15 minutes for police to negotiate with the man before he reluctantly agreed to go with police to the Pattaya Police Station. However, the man was still not fully cooperative and refused to identify himself.
The man is believed to be German based on his accent but that was not solidly confirmed, notes TPN media.
Police were still trying to identify the man and he remained detained as of Saturday afternoon, July 29th. Police suspect the man may have been suffering from mental health issues or abuse of alcohol or drugs.
