Three men fined for shop­ping naked in 7-Eleven store

The Nation - - AROUND THAILAND -

Three men have been fined Bt5,000 each for tak­ing turns to walk naked into a 7-Eleven shop in Non­thaburi prov­ince and pur­chase goods in what was un­der­stood to be a dare.

Po­lice lo­cated and fined the three men on Wednesday af­ter footage from the 7-Eleven shop on Ratchapruek Road in Non­thaburi was widely shared on Face­book.

The clip showed the three men, wear­ing a crash hel­met and noth­ing else, walk­ing into the shop one at a time and mak­ing a pur­chase. The cashier re­mained calm and acted as though noth­ing un­to­ward was tak­ing place.

Po­lice iden­ti­fied the three men only as Ae, 25, Noi, 26 and Yai, 27.

They were charged with com­mit­ting an in­de­cent act in a pub­lic place.

Yai told po­lice that they had been chal­lenged by some friends to strip down and shop and that they also wanted to ex­pe­ri­ence how for­eign­ers felt when they staged nude protests on the street.
