Red Bull heir Vorayudh “Boss” Yoovidhya is still awaiting prosecution after five years.
It is alleged that he hit a motorbike policeman, dragging his body along the road before speeding away from the incident. Police tracked him by following a trail of brake fluid into his estate.
The officer killed was named as Sen Sgt Maj Wichean Glanprasert.
Vorayuth Yoovidhya, 31, the youngest son of Red Bull executive Chalerm Yoovidhya has been summoned time and time again but has so far failed to turn up, according to reports. Excuses such as being ill or out of the country on business have been put forward in the past.
In Thailand, victims of crimes can be compensated by the culprits to avoid prosecution. Apparently a three million baht settlement has been agreed between the parties.
But it was the police who have brought criminal charges again the Red Bull heir.
Vorayudh Yoovidhya has been seen enjoying his wealthy lifestyle around the world, including flying in Red Bull jets, attending Formula One racing events and travelling to London and Laos.
He has been reported in social media posts visiting a number of locations abroad including Japan, Monaco and England.
Many have complained that those who are wealthy in Thailand have privileges not afforded to those of a lesser standing.
Questions have been raised as to how a man as famous as Vorayuth Yoovidhya can move through airport security, apparently undetected, yet never faced arrests while doing so.
Is it really a case of one law for the rich and another for the poor?
