The Red Bull heir accused of killing a police officer while speeding in his Ferrari and fleeing the scene will now have drunken driving added to the charges.

The heir, Vorayuth Yoovidhya, has already been charged for causing a death by reckless driving and escaping an arrest. Police said Vorayuth admitted he was driving the Ferrari that struck the officer’s motorcycle but said the officer swerved in front of him.

His alcohol content was 0.063 per cent, exceeding the legal limit of 0.05 per cent which could result in a stiffer penalty if convicted. However, Vorayuth’s lawyer said his client was not drinking before the accident.

Witnesses said the Ferrari dragged the officer down the road before speeding away. Forensic scientists are certain that the car was coming at more than 100 kilometers per hour.

Police plan to conclude their investigation by the end of the month and forward it to prosecutors for court proceedings.

Author Christopher G. Moore recently commented on the hit-and-run case on his blog website . Moore examines the influence and power of wealth and how, especially in the Red Bull heir’s case, the story is soon buried with other news stories taking its place.

Moore is a well-known author residing in Thailand who is known as one of the leaders of the “Bangkok Noir” fiction genre.
