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.

I would love to see the footage of those guys re-enacting the attack. In Thailand they force criminals to recreate the crime for the police and the media. This would be pretty funny.

Phuket is a dangerous place. Thai mafia or business adversaries play rough there. Supposedly the Thai resort owner kicked a the remains of a broken glass under the table and then he was set upon by six “goons” that worked there. Knifing and pummeling him severely. It is fairly obvious that more was involved than a broken glass. Most likely a dirty business deal or some infraction against the ‘THai mafia than virtually runs Phuket. With the money rolling into this island the Thai’s are all fighting for a peace of it. It is like the Wild West there or “old Chicago" Sometimes foreigners get caught up in it and pay the price. Jeremy Renner should watch who he parties with on the Island.

vorasit is a hi-so brat whose parents own some of the fanciest hotels and buildings in thailand. if he allegedly "dropped a glass on the floor," it probably means he threw a drink at someone during one of his belligerent rant and started a fight. thai locals don't start shanking fellow thais or foreigners in a bar unless they act like a rich douche anyway.

knowing how the rich/powerful are in thailand, vorasit probably acted like a typical rich thai douche and brought the stabbing upon himself.

Why anyone goes to a third world country to vacation and/or have fun is beyond me.

As a woman, I hope he is gay because he won't go near one of my own. Rule amongst my friends.... do not knowingly date a man who parties in Thailand.

BTW: they all go in packs - straight or gay. Living in a major US to Thailand hub one learns these things.
