When Irishman Michael Merry, 55, was pestered by a ladyboy at 3am today in Pattaya's walking street, he pushed her away.
On reflection, that was probably a heelish thing to do.
Offended at being repulsed so bluntly, Wichai Sripalang, 24, slipped off a shoe and, instead of sipping champagne from it, hammered the heel.
The result? Some eye-catching wounds for Mr Merry and a pending fine for Khun Wichai.
