According to a report in Khao Sod, Piya was charged with possession of narcotics with intent to distribute and carrying a firearm without a permit.
Piya told police he decided to sell drugs after his own dealer went to jail. He was later introduced to a Lao supplier.
The drug dealer boasted that he is popular with foreign women because he looks like the world-famous boxer. He added that he even grew a moustache and beard to look more like the eight-division world champion, who will fight Juan Manuel Marquez for the fourth time on Dec 9 (Thai time) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
