BANGKOK – A grandson of the creator of the Red Bull energy drink has been arrested for driving a Ferrari that struck a police officer and dragged his dead body down a Bangkok street in an early-morning hit-and-run, police said Monday
Tragic all around of course, but I’m curious about the outcome.
On one hand, the evidence seems overwhelming and the head cop seems determined to have justice no matter the cost, yet we all know what big money can do for a defendant.
The kicker here is the location, and I’d be interested to see how this kind of incident plays in Thailand vs. the U.S.A.
For a better perspective, we go now to our Asian Reporter* [del]Trisha Takanawa[/del] Siam Sam.
Sam, are you there?
*reporter of things Asian, not necessarily Asian himself.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
