Conflicting Sides on 136 Bar Bill (Videos of Both)

Phnom Penh: A dispute over a bar bill on Phnom Penh’s 136 ended in a violent confrontation between locals and a foreign man.

Local media reported that the man refused to pay a bill of $66.50, plus $10 in lady drinks. Staff from the bar also told reporters that the man became violent and hit a girl. They say he then tried to escape the bar in a tuk tuk.

EDIT: The video of the bar worker claiming she was assailted has now been removed.

Further reports say the foreigner agreed to pay $400 to settle the matter.

So far there are two wildly differing stories to the case. Updates to follow.
