UDON THANI — Three models have been fined for taking off their tops at a pool party in northeastern Thailand.
Photos of the topless models were widely shared on social media this week, prompting police to investigate the incident.
Today the three women seen in the photos and the event’s organizer were summoned to Mueang Udon Thani Police Station to hear their charges. The women, who are in their early 20s, have been charged with indecent exposure, while the party’s organizer has been charged with selling alcohol without permission.
The models confessed to stripping in front of the guests during the party at Milin Water Park and Restaurant on 27 March. They were fined 2,500 baht each by the police.
The organizer, Chaiya Saenboon, said he hired seven models from Bangkok to wear swim suits and entertain guests at the party, but did not order the models to take off their bathing suits.
"The organizers did not tell them to show their breasts," Chaiya said at the police station. "I think it may be drunkenness that drove them to do that. Or they may have wanted tips."
One of the models, who calls herself 'Guitar,' told police officers that she and her two colleagues were urged by the guests to expose themselves in exchange for tip money. She added that they were intoxicated at the time.
"Everyone of us accepts the fault for our inappropriate action," said Guitar. "We would like to apologize."
