Here we go.
Thai Police Arrested a Well-known Vapor
This was all for possession of an e-cigarette.
On Dec. 10 2017, Thai police arrested a well-known internet personality, and charged her with possession of an e-cigarette and “vaping liquid,” according to the Bangkok Post.
Manussaya Yaowarat (apparently known professionally as Flukesri Maneedeng) said that she was arrested after police found the vaping products in her friend’s car after stopping it early Sunday morning.
She claims that she was assaulted by police officers, who placed her in a headlock and grabbed her hair. The police say she was “arguing loudly” so they were taking her to a jail cell to “calm down.” They claim that she resisted, so more police were brought in to “help overpower her.” Police are considering whether to charge her with “insulting officials performing their duty,” according to the Post. She was released on bail.

Police seized 40 vaping devices and 3,500 bottles of e-liquid from their apartment and a separate warehouse. According to the Post, they confessed to selling the products via two Facebook pages. They claimed that most of their customers are students.
