BANGKOK (THE NATION/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Popular Thai actor-cum-singer Rattapoom Tokongsup has claimed that he was arrested and fined 5,000 baht (S$195.50) by the South Korean police after he performed an Ice Bucket challenge on Saturday.

He said the local residents called the police, saying an insane man was shouting abusive words that they did not understand, and then he poured water on the road.

He also posted clips of himself doing the popular challenge on social media site Instagram. The clip shows a man dressed in what seems to be police uniform confronting him after the challenge.

A YouTube user compiled the clips into one video and posted it on YouTube.
