A night of what was supposed to be harmless fun singing karaoke, turned deadly after an American tourist refused to stop singing and was stabbed to death.

Bobby Ray Carter was vacationing in Krabi, Thailand when he took the stage at Little Longhorn Saloon. After the band skipped his song selection and instead played the Eagles classic “Hotel California,” a reportedly drunk Carter refused to get off the stage.

After he refused to allow any other singers on the stage, a fight broke out between Carter, 51, and the musicians when he demanded back the money he had given as a tip.

“The real fight broke out outside of that pub,” Lieutenant Colonel Attapong Seanjaiwuth of Krabi tourist police said, according to Channel NewsAsia. “He was stabbed twice and died while on the way to local hospital.”

Carter was reportedly stabbed in the chest with an iron rod by members of the band. The musicians were arrested and charged with assault and “causing death by physical attack.”
