Gulf War veteran killed after walking out on tab in Thailand

A retired army major who survived the Gulf War was killed with a single punch by a Thai strip club bouncer after the soldier tried to skip out on the tab.

55-year-old Major Mike Jones-Mathias, was fatally truck while on a “work trip” after he attempted to leave the Pattya gogo bar without paying.

His wife, Veronica, doubts the official account of the story, claiming her late husband would never skip out.

“For the record, I know my husband would never have left a bar without paying a bill,” she told the Daily Mail. “What could have happened in that establishment that could make that punch lawful?”

Officially, however, the punch was lawful and deemed an act of self-defense on the part of security guard Phumphat Tanosingh, whose charges of grievous bodily harm were dropped.

Major Jones-Mathias served in the British Army and saw action during Operation Desert Storm.
