Red Bull scion faces arrest warrant over hit-and-run
BANGKOK (AFP) - Thai prosecutors on Tuesday sought an arrest warrant for the Ferrari-driving heir of the Red Bull empire after he failed to appear to face charges over a deadly hit-and-run.
Worayuth Yoovidhya, 28, is accused of colliding with a police officer riding a motorcycle, and dragging the body about 100 metres along a main road in Bangkok last year.
Prosecutors say they plan to indict him with charges of causing death by dangerous driving and fleeing the scene.
But charges of drink driving and speeding have been dropped.
