Red Bull heir Vorayuth Yoovidhya skips court in death by dangerous driving case
Monday 02 September 2013
An arrest warrant is being sought for an heir to the Red Bull energy drink fortune after he failed to appear for his indictment in the hit-and-run death of a policeman, a prosecutor said.
A lawyer for Vorayuth Yoovidhya said the 30-year-old heir was on a business trip in Singapore and was unable to return to Thailand because he fell ill. He faces charges of causing death by reckless driving and not stopping to help, which carry a maximum sentence of 10 years.
It is the sixth time Mr Vorayuth’s indictment has been postponed since he allegedly slammed his Ferrari into a police officer at high speed and dragged his body down a Bangkok street last September.
