A man whose roadside coupling on Samui became the subject of an online sex clip was made to apologize to reporters and the public on camera after being arrested and fined by police on Tuesday, May 9th.
The randy tourists sparked outrage after reportedly being spotted having sex on a beach in broad daylight.
The video drew massive criticism on social media, where many expressed their disgust and urged the police to take action.
Winai Jitmung, who filmed the couple, said: ‘“This is disgusting. Everyone can see them and they’re not even trying to hide it.
“They are foreign trash.”
Noi Wattana said: “Were they awake at that time or had they been partying all night?
“They should be arrested and apologise for offending our culture.”
Arnau was finally arrested at the hotel. According to him, he just met the woman, who he said was Russian on Sunday night. They drank until morning before going to the beach. Police are still looking for the woman.
The Spaniard was fined 500 baht for public obscenity and made to apologise.
“I am so sorry for everybody in Thailand,” he said, making a wai gesture, to a reporter who followed him out of the police station. “I know it’s not good, but I drank too much.”
“Kho tod kab,” Arnau repeated as instructed by a reporter to say. “ I respect you. I like you. I love you. Sorry for this”
