      HIT AND RUN
      Son of Red Bull executive nabbed for alleged fatal hit-and-run accident

      A son of Red Bull drinks executive Chalerm Yoovidhya was arrested on Monday for allegedly killing a police patrolman in a hit-and-run accident.

      Chalerm's son, Worayuth, was arrested at Chalerm's house on Sukhumvit Soi 53 after he admitted to Metropolitan Police Commissioner Pol Lt Gen Kamronwit Thoopkrajang that he was driving the Ferrari that hit the motorcycle of Pol Sen Sgt Maj Wichien Klanprasert of Thonglor police station at 5,30am.

      The Ferrari car was seen fleeing into Chalerm's house, prompting Kamronwit to rush to the house and talk with Chalerm for about an hour.

      Wichien was hit by the black sports car at the mouth of Soi Sukhumvit 49. The car dragged Wichien's body and motorcycle for over 200 metres.

      Witnesses told police that the Ferrari fled into Chalerm's house on Sukhumvit Soi 53.

      Before Chalerm's son confessed to driving the car, Kamronwit told reporters that if the car owner did not cooperate with police, he would return to the house with 200 policemen to search it.

      Kamronwit said he would step down as the Metropolitan police chief if he failed to bring Wichien's killer to justice.

      "I can't let a police officer to die in vain. I'll bring the real culprit to justice," he said.

      Kamronwit also demoted Pol Lt Col Pannapon Nammuang, a crime suppression inspector of Thonglor Police station, to an inactive position.

      Kamronwit said Pannapon tried to have someone to pretend to be the driver of the car that hit the policeman.

      "It is unacceptable for him to set up the arrest of a scapegoat. He ignored the death of his subordinate," Kamronwit said.

      Crime inspector of Thonglor police station seconded for trying arrest scapegoat
      September 3, 2012 12:02 pm
      Metropolitan Police Commissioner Pol Lt Gen Kamronwit Thoopkrajang Monday seconded Pol Lt Col Pannapon Nammuang, a crime suppression inspector of Thonglor Police station, to an inactive position at the Metropolitan Police.



      Kamronwit said Pannapon tried to have someone to pretend to be the driver of the car that hit and killed Pol Sen Sgt Maj Wichien Klanprasert of Thonglor police station.

      "This was unacceptable for him to set up for an arrest of a scapegoat. He ignored the death of his subordinate," Kamronwit said.

      Kamronwit said Pannapon would be indefinitely seconded to the Metropolitan Police head office.

      He's rich and lives in Thailand... I'm sure his punishment will be light. Lots of cases like these all over SE Asia and they always get away with it... money speaks even louder there than it does here.

      I heard people get whipped just for things like stealing or spitting in the streets but that's just ordinary people. The family will get some compensation and everything will work out fine in the end.

      Just wanted to add that REAL Thai Redbull in the glass bottles is worlds better then the canned **** we get here.


      Go to any Asia grocery store and buy a case of 30 bottles for like $25.00. There only slightly smaller then the US sized cans.

      Ohh and the word Soi means small street or ally. Judging by the damage to the F car he was going way to fast to be driving down most sois.
