Bangkok police will seek an arrest warrant to apprehend Red Bull heir Vorayuth Yoovidhya – who is a suspect in the hit-and-run Ferrari accident that left a Thonglor policeman dead – if he does not turn himself in for questioning soon.
Metropolitan Police deputy chief Anuchai Lekbumrung made that announcement today following Vorayuth’s no-show at Thonglor Police Station last Friday, the Bangkok Post reported.
“Another warrant will be issued. If he refuses to show up his bail money will be confiscated and we’ll seek an arrest warrant accordingly,” Pol Maj Gen Anuchai said. He added that the investigation into the case was over 80% finished and that police had not yet requested his blood test results from physicians. The Nation reported on Saturday that cocaine was detected in Vorayuth’s blood.
Voryauth, who goes by the nickname “Boss,” admitted to hitting and killing a Thonglor policeman woith his Ferrari on Sukhumvit Road in the early hours of Sep. 3.
He is the grandson of the late Chaleo Yoovidhya, who founded Red Bull and went on to become one of Thailand’s wealthiest men.
