Thai Men Ar‌r‌e‌s‌te‌d After Str‌eak‌‌ing Inside 7-Eleven Stores to Copy ‘Foreigners’ Behavior

June 15, 2018
Three men in Thailand found themselves in po‌l‌ic‌e custody after storming three 7-Eleven stores n‌ak‌ed on June 12.
The unidentified trio, who visited the stores separately, claimed that they were trying to pull off a similar stunt done by foreigners they saw on TV.
The visits, which took place around 2 a.m., were caught on surveillance videos that have since been shared by various media outlets.
The men, aged 25, 26 and 27, conceived the idea while hanging out at home on the same evening.

In‌ve‌stiga‌tions revealed that the trio tested negative for alcohol and drugs.
In the end, the men — who only wore helmets — were charged with public indecency and each fined 5,000 Thai baht ($150), according to Thai Rath.
They were also forced to re-enact the scenes for media outlets while shirtless.

“It’s best to know the law before you do anything. If you’re caught, you’ll be fined. It’s not to the gods.”
“These three are retarded.”
“Just… Why?!”
