A 28 year old big biker is facing eight charges after he hit a senior policeman at a checkpoint near Central Westgate in Bang Yai on the outskirts of Bangkok. 

 

Bang Yai police had set up the checkpoint on Friday night to stop road racers and the incident occurred at 12.40 am on Saturday when Pol Lt-Col Weerasak walked out with his torch and ordered the rider to stop. 

 

He slowed down then revved his 650 cc Honda CBR colliding with the officer who suffered a head injury that required emergency brain surgery at the Police Hospital. Weerasak remains in ICU. 

 

The rider was caught at another police checkpoint set up by the Bang Kruay police further down the road. 

 

Akkharin, 28, was found to have an alcohol level of 131 mg, nearly three times over the limit. 

 

He was denied bail and ordered held by the court on eight charges.

 

They were dangerous driving, injuring a policeman, drunk driving, refusing to stop for an officer, fleeing the scene of an accident, having no licence, having no plates and having no Thai ID in his possession. 

 

Bang Yai station chief Pol Col Suraphot Rortbamrung said that his injured colleague was a diligent and likable officer who he hoped would soon recover from his injuries and be back on duty.
