(Newser) – Rihanna continues to fight crime in Thailand, 140 characters at a time. Last month, two men were arrested for possession of protected animals after the singer posted a selfie with a slow loris. Now, a Phuket bar owner has been arrested after she posted the details of a sex show at his establishment last month, the AP reports. "Either I was phuck wasted lastnight, or I saw a Thai woman pull a live bird,2 turtles,razors,shoot darts and ping pong, all out of her [expletive]," the singer tweeted.

The bar owner is now facing charges of obscenity and operating an entertainment venue without a permit, which could land him in prison for a month and slapped with a $1,900 fine. "Authorities found out about this bar the morning after Rihanna tweeted about it, but we were not able to catch them violating the law until Saturday night," says the local district chief. "We had been waiting for them and finally caught them red-handed." (Read more Phuket stories.)
