British backpacker who drunkenly graffitied 'Scousse Lee' on 13th century Thai fortress faces 10 years in jail

Thai police said early Friday they had arrested a Canadian and Briton - Brittney Schneider and Furlong Lee, respectively, both 23 - at a guest house in Chiang Mai.

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

Reuters have reported that 23 year olds Furlong Lee (UK) and Brittney Schneider (Canada) were arrested at a guesthouse in Chiang Mai and are being held at the provincial court pending further questioning over the matter.

Tha Pae Gate, which dates back to the 13th century, is part of an historic wall that forms a square around Chiang Mai's inner city.

Schneider said her daughter told her she was drunk and she was following along.

"She said she's ashamed of herself", Schneider said. "She knew and she discontinued the engagement". "I'm sorry to say it, but not my daughter, not my Britteny". "She's never been in trouble in her life".

Tara said Canadian officials told her there is nothing they can do to change local laws in Thailand.

"We've now sent the bail money". "That's been shipped off in the process and she will be released Monday".

Schneider's mother said she was travelling in Thailand alone and has a "passion for travelling" and had made lots of friends travelling around the world.

"I would like to be there for her during the time she waits for trial so she's not alone".
