Drunk American tourist launches racist tirade at female restaurant owner in Thailand, brags about raping children
Daniel Franckowiak, 46, of Bismarck, North Dakota, was taken into custody on November 5 by authorities in Chiang Mai, Thailand
An American tourist has been arrested in Thailand after going on a racist tirade that also involved threats of rape and murder against a female restaurant owner.
Daniel Franckowiak, 46, of Bismarck, North Dakota, was taken into custody last Tuesday, November 5, by authorities in Chiang Mai. He was charged with criminal damage in connection to the incident, according to the Thai Examiner.
He reportedly launched a shocking verbal attack against Salita Akaruean, who owns a small restaurant in the town, where he claimed he was a "real m*****f*****" and bragged about killing people and raping children. The horrific incident was captured on video by an onlooker.
In the video, Franckowiak can be heard saying, "I kill people. I rape children. I kill f******. I'm real! I'll f****** kill and rip you, too! You're going down. You're going down, you coward c**** b****."
He then seemingly goes off on a tangent. "I don't drink," he proclaims."You know why I drink? I don't drink to be happy. I drink to destroy you. You're gonna get destroyed."
He continues to hurl racial slurs as people gather around him. He then tells one person that his skin looks like "the a** of a f****** cow."
"Should have known better than to f*** with me," he says, before then starting to dance on the street and further antagonizing the crowd.
The ordeal came to an end after two police officers arrived at the scene and one ordered him to "turn around". They placed handcuffs on him and led him away.
Franckowiak has been released from custody but is scheduled to appear before a court in Chiang Mai to face his charges in December.
It was reported that he was involved in a series of such altercations across the city and, after his release, went straight back to Akaruean's restaurant to insult her and her customers.
He then went on to his Facebook account and claimed that he did so as part of a US government-funded scientific experiment. He bragged about being arrested three times in nine weeks and said he was not deported yet because he was an American government VIP.
