Bungee jumping in Bangkok
A bungee-jump operator in Chiang Mai was gently fined today for letting a Hong Kong model jump naked.
When police in Mae Rim heard a pretty young woman was naked at X-Centre Bungee Jump today, they rushed to the scene, only to find the video and photos of the naked tourist spread online were already a week old.
"I didn't think the video and photos would be posted and criticized online, " Manager Bancha Chulakul told police.
Bancha said the unidentified tourist visited the venue on May 6, claiming she was a model and wanted the footage for her portfolio.
She first wore a bikini but then took it off and jumped. After that, she took a Songtaew back to her hotel.
Authorities fined Bancha THB1, 000 for obscenity and released him.
Yutthakarn Metha, a Mae Rim police investigator, said they are also tracking down the tourist to ask her not to spread the photos because Chiang Mai is a “city of culture, ” Manager reported.
