PHUKET:-- The Phang Nga police officer who landed six people in a hospital in Phang Nga on the night of Sept 9 when drunk at the wheel of his pickup truck has been charged with drunk driving after results of his BAC test confirmed that his alcohol level was over the limit.

 

Lt Dusit Phongphan, an inspector with the Phang Nga Muang District Police, told The Phuket News today (Sept 29), “We have finally received the BAC test results from Phang Nga Hospital after waiting for more than two weeks, and they confirm that the officer’s alcohol level was more than 50mg at the time of the incident.

 

“The officer has now been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol,” he said.

 

Lt Dusit declined to elaborate further as to whether the officer, Sub Lt Thanom Haesathit, will face a prison sentence.

I don't believe it! Not true. Two weeks for a blood test? Obviously been tampered with just to blame him. The man is innocent. Posted to inactive post until innocence is proven.

Looks like the 20 days grace period wasn't enough time for the guy to come up with a sufficient amount of 'merit-making' to make the whole thing go away.

PHANG NGA: -- The police officer who injured six people in a drunk-driving multiple hit-and-run in Phang Nga last month will face full charges, Phang Nga Police have confirmed to The Phuket News.

 

Sub Lt Thanom Haesathit of the Phang Nga Muang District Police was taken into custody on Sept 9 after he left six people injured after his pickup truck crossed Phetkasem Rd and crashed into them – then he fled the scene.

 

Witnesses said Sub Lt Thanom reeked of alcohol when he exited his vehicle at a local temple. The incident sparked outrage among local residents in Phang Nga Town. 

 

In less than 24 hours, Sub Lt Thanom was then released on bail of B20,000 after he was charged with reckless driving causing injury and fleeing the scene of an accident. 

After taking more than two weeks to ascertain the results of the blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) tests from Phang Nga Hospital, police finally confirmed that Sub Lt Thanom will be charged with drunk driving.

 

Yesterday (Oct 11), Lt Dusit Phongphan, an inspector with the Phang Nga Muang District Police, confirmed that police had concluded their investigation into the case.

Wow. So swift. Very obviously this Sub Lt Thanom Haesathit of the Phang Nga Muang District Police isn't very well connected or doesn't come from a well-heeled-and-connected family.

Full charges are a far cry from actually being held accountable for what he did. Don't hold your breath on any justice being served here.
