BANGKOK: — A 43-year-old Briton has been arrested on suspicion of carrying out a road rage attack in Thailand which left a Keighley teacher in a coma.
Sean Henry Tinsley has been remanded in custody for the attempted murder of Adam Pickles, 40, after being arrested at Bangkok International Airport.
It is alleged that he attacked Mr Pickles with a wheelbrace after a vehicle incident in which a car was scraped.
Tinsley had left Thailand after the alleged attack on Mr Pickles, a former Bradford Grammar School student, in the resort of Pattaya – 80 miles east of Bangkok.
Tinsley, from Wolverhampton, was arrested on his return late on Friday and remanded in custody on Saturday at Pattaya Provincial Court.
Mr Pickles – who grew up in Riddlesden and is married with a nine- month-old son – is thought to have been attacked following an incident in which he scraped another vehicle while getting out of a parking spot in the resort city.
After six weeks Mr Pickles, the head of English at the Regent’s International School in Pattaya, was brought back home to the UK when a local and international appeal received a massive response for funds.

I hope that this cowardly thug spends the rest of his days in the Bangkok Hilton.
