Jeremy Renner was attacked in Phuket, Thailand in an early morning bar brawl that left one man in serious condition after getting slashed in the neck with a rotor ax.

Thai authorities say Jeremy and his party had been bar hopping and ended up at the club where the violence broke out at 4:30 AM, after hours.  One of the men in Jeremy's party -- Vorasit Issara, the General Manager of the Siri Panwa Resort -- dropped a glass on the floor and apparently that started the melee. 

Six men -- who apparently worked at the bar -- then allegedly attacked Jeremy, Vorasit and the others in their party. In addition to being stabbed in the neck, Vorasit was stabbed in the stomach with a knife.

One source claims Vorasit was drinking and was in a heated argument with the bar staff immediately before the attack. The six men who attacked Jeremy's group were arrested.

Jeremy suffered minor injuries.

Rule number one while partying in other countries... don't get into fights in a third world country. It may be your last one. They

Same thing happened a couple weeks ago to MMA fighter Junie Browning, in Phuket as well. Big bar brawl, stabbings and glass mugs ****tered over peoples heads....Then the Thai authorities put the two parties involved in the same hospital room and the brawl spilled over there too. Junie escaped and the frickin Thai Mafia was out to kill him and his GF! He turned himself in after talking to the US embassy last week i believe. Crazy Phuket!

I lived in Thailand for over a year, and that is a very strange thing to happen. Thai's are usually very polite and easy going. However, once they reach their breaking point they snap and can go crazy in a way you generally don't see elsewhere (this is related to culture not race btw). Probably alcohol helped things along. Also, Phuket is a huge tourist trap so that may have something to do with it too.

OooooNooo!    

Nothing good happens at 4:30 AM in Phuket, Thailand unless you are trolling for he/she cross-dressing hookers.

Two points:

1. The "land of smiles" has become very treacherous in the last decade and many tourists killed.

2. The Sawadeekap Hollywood douche bags who think they can go over there and axe-a-fool, might be lucky to make it home with their spleen. (or hep c neg).

Thailand is freaky stupid. If they catch you doing anything to even an image of their precious King, they'll jail your ass for centuries.
