Jeremy Renner Party Attacked, Friend Stabbed With Ax in Thailand Bar Brawl

First the good news: despite earlier reports to the contrary, a rep for Jeremy  Renner tells E! News that the actor did not suffer any  injuries—minor or otherwise—when a bar brawl broke out in a Phuket, Thailand,  pub last night. The horrible news: a member of the party he was traveling with  was left in serious condition.

The Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol star nearly found himself in  the middle of a brutal bar brawl when six staffers of the resort town’s Rachada  Pub attacked his party, with one of the attackers horrifically wielding a  homemade rotor ax during the fight.

Here’s what happened…

“He was at the bar when the fight broke out and he exited,” the  star’s rep  confirmed to E! News, adding that he was “not injured” and  “not involved” in  the attack. Renner is currently in the area, however,  working on the new Bourne franchise film in Manila.

According to the Phuket Gazette, the 31-year-old actor was traveling  in a party of six: in addition to another man and two women, he was also  accompanied by a driver and the general manager of the Sri Panwa  Resort,  Vorasit Issara.

The fight reportedly broke out around 4:30 a.m. after Issara dropped a  glass  on the floor of the pub, the third they had visited that night.  No further  details were provided, including any other events or  altercations that led to  the fight, but the action was reportedly  preceded by a verbal argument and  ultimately caused a brawl to break  out, leading six pub employees—ranging in  age from 18 to 33—to rush the  party.

Among the weapons confiscated by police were a variety of clubs and cutting  instruments and, most disturbingly, a homemade ax made from a   motorcycle brake  rotor.

Issara was most critically injured in the fight, getting stabbed in  the stomach by 26-year-old Suchart “Ball” Palae, as well as taking the   ax to his  neck by 18-year-old Nareubate “Ko” Tednok.

According to investigating officers with the Phuket City Police, who held a  press conference with the six attackers, Issara remains in the   hospital with  serious stomach wounds, partially severed neck tendons and   bruises covering  his body.

All six men have since confessed to the attack and been charged with  attempted murder.
