Brittney Schneider Faces 10 Years In Prison In Thailand For Alleged Graffiti

The words "Scouser Lee" were painted on the wall, seemingly a reference to the city of Liverpool.

CBC Edmonton reports that security camera footage allegedly shows Brittney Schneider and her friend Lee Furlong, who is from the United Kingdom, painting a brick wall near the Tha Phae Gate, the main entrance to the city's old town.

Col. Teerasak Sriprasert, chief of the Chiang Mai police, said that Lee admitted that he wrote "Scouser Lee" on the 800-year old wall, while Schneider told police that she wrote the letter "B" underneath it.

Chiang Mai is Thailand's fourth-largest city and tourists can visit the historic walled parts of the city, some which date back to the 13th Century.

Schneider said her daughter told her she was drunk and she was following along. After that, her daughter will have to remain in Thailand until her trial, which could be in two months, she said. "But I said stay strong and breathe and go through it".

A Canadian woman, Brittney Schneider, has also been arrested and charged with vandalism for allegedly adding her first initial to graffiti on the gate.

"She never did a bad thing in her life".

Canadian consular officials have arrived in the city and are speaking with the suspects, according to Global Affairs Canada.

"You would have to know Britteny to know this is not her", said Schneider. "That's been shipped off in the process and she will be released Monday".
