Junie Browning Turns Self in at Phuket Police Station, Saga Ongoing

via phuketwan.com

The saga of former UFC fighter Junie Browning and his part in a Phuket bar brawl seems to take a new twist or turn every few days and yesterday was no different. According to Phuketwan, Browning appeared at a police station to turn himself in and attempt to settle the situation stemming from a brawl that took place in a local brawl which saw him suffer severe lacerations from, what he claims was, a knife attack after he was already being beaten up by a large group.

But the situation appears far from over. From the article:

None of the people involved in the brawl were held by police tonight.

However, the first attempt to mediate a settlement failed when the respective parties declined to sit down to talk.

The dispute between Browning and the others who were injured in the brawl leaves police with differing accounts of the rights and wrongs of the events.

...

If both sides continue to claim they were wronged, the process could be extended.

Rather than pick and choose who is telling the truth, officers are likely to continue to try to conduct a mediation session aimed at finding a compromise.

It could be that Browning may be asked to pay for the hospital treatment of the others involved, and damage at the bar.

Browning in turn may seek compensation for his injuries.

I'm far from an expert in the legal dealings of other countries, but the idea of sitting down to find a compromise in a situation that did, very clearly, involve one party being stabbed repeatedly in the head and sent to the hospital seems very strange.

I'll refrain from any speculation at this point, but I'm sure we'll have more details very soon.
