Police have arrested Siapo Po-arnon - a net idol, former celebrity boxer, former House adviser on gambling - on charges of organising online gambling.
Crime Suppression Division officers took the 29-year-old man into custody at his house on Phetkasem Road in Phasicharoen district of Bangkok about 6am.
His house was one of seven places raided in relation to the suspect's alleged online gambling network.
At his house, police also arrested his follower, Pacharapol Chansawang, and 25 Myanmar workers, and seized a gun and 11 bullets for examination.
Last August, a House working group on whether to legalise online gambling invited Mr Siapo to participate in its deliberations as an adviser.
