Prey Veng province police got two wildly different versions of the story of how a villager was attacked by his neighbour with a bamboo stick on Thursday night.
Filing a complaint in Mesang district the next morning, the 66-year-old victim claims he was laying out fishing nets with his grandson when he was given a whacking.
After cops arrested the 52-year-old aggressor, he claimed the man was actually drunk and shouting outside his house before he came at him with the pole.
As of press time, authorities were still determining which story was closer to the truth.
