All Charges Dropped Against Red Bull Heir

All criminal charges against Red Bull heir Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya who was accused of killing a police officer in a 2012 hit-and-run in Bangkok have been dropped.

Yoovidhya was informed by letter the charge of reckless driving causing death had been dropped and the warrant for his arrest withdrawn, according to a police statement on Friday.

The attorney general “decided to acquit Mr Vorayuth Yoovidhya on all charges” despite saying only 4 weeks ago police still had 7 years to catch the accused as the statute of limitation on reckless driving causing death was 15 years from the day of the event.

The speeding charge had already been dropped when the one-year statute of limitation expired and a second charge — failing to stop and help a crash victim — expired on Sept 3, 2017.

Yoovidhya was accused of being behind the wheel when his Ferrari hit and killed Pol Sgt Maj Wichian Klanprasert on Sukhumvit Road on Sept 3, 2012.

Forensic police concluded he had been driving at 177 kilometres per hour when he hit the policeman on his motorbike and dragged him over 100 metres before fleeing the scene.

In 2017 Yoovidhya fled on a private jet two days before he was due to face the charges and failed to appear in court at least seven times.
