Nepal's ex-crown prince nabbed in Thailand, again

BANGKOK (AP) — Nepal's former crown price, notorious for his flamboyant lifestyle, has been arrested for marijuana possession in Thailand for a second time in two years, police said Wednesday.

Paras Shah was taken into custody last week after officers found marijuana in his Bangkok hotel room, police Col. Chutrakul Madee said. He was released on bail Monday.

"The officers were initially called to investigate a quarrel between him and his girlfriend and then they found the marijuana," Chutrakul said. "He will be brought to a Bangkok court for prosecution."

Shah was in Thailand on a tourist visa.

In 2012, he was arrested for marijuana possession on the resort island of Phuket in southern Thailand. It's unclear how that case was resolved.
