PHUKET: Two men arrested on Thursday for brandishing a firearm at Phuket City Police officers and attempting to flee the scene were not charged for attempted murder.

First reports alleged that the two 18-year-olds, Weerasak Bangroy and Chaiyuth Siriboon, had been hired to make a pre-Valentine’s Day hit by an ex-girlfriend.

Tinnakorn Suwan, 21, reported the duo to police after a violent argument broke out between the three men earlier that morning.
