Kritsana, boyfriend of actress Lakana “Aum” Wattanawongsiri, is accused of ordering the guards – Adisak Pengleng, Thanandorn Munsawaeng and Apiwat Na Lamphun — to assault Issarajnuwat Wankawisan, a student of Payap University, at Malin Sky Bar on Friday night.

Issarajnuwat, son of the regional army commander, told police that a group of celebs were responsible for ordering the guards to beat him after he got into an argument with them about access to a restroom.

Sawika Na Takuathung, Kritsana’s mother, had prepared money for bail, but police refused to release them, Maj. Phumipat said, leaving it up to the court.
