A grandson of Red Bull's late co-creator Chaleo Yoovidhaya has been arrested on suspicion of running over a policeman with a Ferrari in Bangkok.
The Thai police officer died after he and his motorbike were dragged some distance down a road.
Police said they had followed a petrol trail to the family estate where they detained Vorayuth Yoovidhaya, 27.
Bangkok's police chief took over the inquiry as a lower-ranked officer was alleged to have covered up the matter.
The police superintendent involved was transferred to another post after a bogus suspect was detained.

Did he have wings?
Only problem with this type of scenario is that now the police chief can also be accused of impropriety. Which one is the good cop?
Hope this grows legs. It’ll be interesting to see the outcome.
That’s it for me. No more Red Bull.
No pun intended.
I have many friends from Thailand and this sign coulb be very accurate
They are the sweetest and nicest people I have ever met, and they love their country and King as much as their own family. Cross that line at your peril
And they DO NOT like Arabs- they are willing to openly say so too. They think Arabas are all terrorists who want to take over their country- there will be a war there over it.
Got a few bucks and you can get away with ANYTHING in Bangkok...
Pretty much like Washington D.C.. or NYC or Chicago or Detroit or L.A. for sure San Fransicko..
A night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble.
Although I’ve never been to Thailand, I speak a little Thai, learned from an American who spent 13 months there during the Vietnam unpleasantness.
Everyone I’ve met who has ever been there absolutely loved it.
My brother just retired a few months ago. He’s moving there, permanently. I’d go, but... What’s the gun control situation like over there?
If so, this is the drink that possibly saved my life one rainy night when driving home from New Jersey. I was falling asleep at the wheel and almost drove off the road at least once. I pulled into a rest stop and purchased a $4.95 (!) can of this substance at the convenience store there. I was turbocharged from that point on! I stopped for another can in Connecticut and by the time I got home, I was wired and listening to some loud rock station as I pulled into my driveway. I couldn't even get to sleep that night. Powerful stuff but the best $10 I ever spent.
The best part about the Muslim problem in Thailand is the the Muslim population is very small (only a few percent of the total) and mostly located in the far south in provinces next door to Malaysia (where they came from originally). The Muslim terrorism in Thailand has been going on since at least the mid 1960s. Ninety six to Ninety Seven percent of the Thai population are peaceful Buddhist. The Thais seem to take the policy of an ‘eye for eye’ with Muslims which keeps the Islamic problem down to a slow burn. The Thais are quite accepting of Westerners (Farangs) and one is most often treated well there. As depicted by this article - there is quite a bit of corruption in the government, the police, and even in business. But this seems to be the way of countries in South East Asia...
I am going to retire in Thailand also ...
Answer to your question:
Non Thai residents (non citizens in Thailand) cannot legally own or posses a firearm)

Thanks. That pretty much guarantees I won’t be moving there. Can’t see moving to a country where, essentially, I’m the only one NOT allowed to own a gun! None of this affects my brother; he’s a liberal.
This happens all the time in Thailand.
The children of the powerful and super wealthy break the law and kill people and get away with it.
Haven't a clue.
