Mr Browning walked into Chalong Police Station at about 2pm with his lawyer and filed a counter-complaint against Australian Simon Menzies.
Mr Menzies had already filed a complaint against Mr Browning after the pair became involved in a brawl in a bar in Karon.
The two men continued to fight at Patong Hospital, where they were receiving treatment for injuries sustained in the bar brawl, before Mr Browning absconded.
Mr Browning’s arrival came at the public request of the police, as he was wanted for questioning over the incident.
Capt Chianchai Duangsuwan confirmed to the Phuket Gazette that at no time had an arrest warrant been issued for Mr Browning as “it was not a serious case”.
Hoping to resolve the dispute without involving further legal action, police called Mr Menzies and his wife to come to the police station to talk with Mr Browning.
In order to avoid any further confrontation between the two, Chalong Police recommended that Mr Browning leave the police station while his lawyer negotiated with Mr Menzies.
Mr Browning’s lawyer offered to settle through payment of 15,000 baht.
The offer was rejected, as Mr Menzies claimed the damages to his bar cost at least 200,000 baht.
