Picture: Thai Rath
The head of Hua Hin police has been forced to admit that one of his finest was boozing in uniform after a clip hit social media.
Constable Anan Meejanphet, 45, was shown with a can of Leo in his hand groping a woman.
Station chief Pol Col Sitthichai Srisophacharoenrat tried to play down the incident saying that his underling was called to a disagreement at a housewarming party of some neighbors he knows well.
But the incident was around 11pm before the constable was about to go on motorcycle patrol duty.
At the party, according to the post online, he arrived out of uniform but was dared to put it on.
Thai Rath countered that he did appear rather inebriated.
The chief has ordered a committee of enquiry to be set up and ordered Anan to be transferred to clerical duties while the investigation runs its course.
