A brick-wielding US tourist went on an alcohol-fueled vandalism rampage in Thailand before cops slammed him to the ground using hooks and sticks.

The holidaymaker, named by police as Andigo, 45, was reportedly caught kicking trash bins and destroying property along a street before furious locals confronted him in Nakhon Si Thammarat province on the afternoon of October 5.

As he was about to smash a parked pickup truck with a brick he found on a ditch, a resident shouted ‘No’ at him to which he responded ‘Shut up! You shut the f*** up!’

The man, who was wearing a blue shirt, pants and a dog tag necklace, reportedly went on cursing at locals and damaging five houses, a car, and a scooter before police responded in the area to arrest him.

Despite being asked to leave, the American hit the vehicle twice with the hard object as the worried female car owner followed him.

After scaring the car owner away, he pushed a parked scooter and shouted ‘don’t touch me’ to a concerned resident who tried to pull him off the two-wheeler.

Soon after, two police trucks arrived, and at least eight officers used Y-shaped and hooked sticks to subdue the US tourist.

Police Colonel Boonchuen Lim Prachuappong, superintendent of the Khanom police station, said: ‘The foreigner is a US citizen who entered the country with a one-month tourist visa.’
