According to police chief Col. Taksin Pochakorn, 51-year-old Bobby Ray Carter Jr. and his 27-year-old son Adam had been throwing back a few at the Little Longhorn Saloon — a bar located near Ao Nang beach that promises "good music, funfunfun and friendly staff."
The bar's main attraction is a live karaoke band that takes requests, and a drunk Carter was availing himself of their services when things got out of hand.
The musicians then decided to take a break, but Carter continued hogging the stage, and refused to let anyone else have a turn.
Carter, his son, and the band took their altercation outside, where Carter was ultimately stabbed in the chest with an iron rod.
He was pronounced DOA at an area hospital.
Police arrested the three suspected assailants and charged them with causing death by physical attack.
