A barmaid armed with a shoe launches a ferocious kung fu-style attack on a British couple after they refused to pay a £27 drinks bill.

Rungnapa Pleumjai took off her footwear to whack David Lodge, 63, around the face - leaving him with a black eye - before chasing him down the street hitting and kicking, including in the crotch.

Pleumjai, screaming: 'You pay your bill,' also attacks David's wife, trying to yank down her white dress, showing off terrifying martial arts skills in footage shot in holiday hotspot Pattaya in Thailand.

The row broke out after David refused to settle his 1,200 Thai Baht (£27) bill, paying just 600 Baht (£14), before storming out claiming he could get cheaper booze at a supermarket.

But Pleumjai, 43, who has bleached blonde hair, flies into a rage at the Patsy Beer Bar and carries out a savage karate-style attack that has seen her charged with assault for "damaging the image of tourism in Pattaya", according to police.

Footage taken by onlooker Thira Phengrat shows the woman arguing with the couple outside the pub before attacking David and chasing them, firing kicks and punches.

Thira said: "The girl was very, very angry. The British couple should have paid their bill but she should not have attacked them.

"It was not a big bill for about six or seven drinks at a bar. They thought that it was a scam but if they buy a drink for a girl who works at a bar, they also have to pay for that."

David said: "We were overcharged for the drinks. They were ripping us off. They're much cheaper at the local supermarket.

"I paid the price that the drinks should have been. Then she attacked us, so I reported it to the police."

Police interviewed the bar worker and she told them that the prices were higher than the supermarket because it was a bar with bigger overheads.

She said after the attack: "Everybody knows you go to a bar and beer is more than the supermarket because there are bills to pay.

"The couple knew the prices. They were on the menu. We tell them the price and they get a bill after each drink.

"Why do they think they can run up a bill then leave without paying? Is it any surprise I am angry? How I can get my wages if customers don't pay?"

A police spokesman said: "People should not attack tourists. If they have a problem, it should be reported to the police first for us to investigate."
