KHON KAEN - A man who feared he would be made a scapegoat for drug charges climbed up a tall road sign above the highway in Chum Phae district and attached a protest sign and a plastic goat to it on Tuesday. 

Wattanachai Chaisiricharoen, 35, hung up a sign saying, "I do not use or sell drugs. My shop was searched twice and I am afraid someone might plant drugs on me".

He then stood there, 15 metres above the road with a knife in his hand, according to a report in Daily News.
