An Australian expat today (July 16) faces being charged with drunk and reckless driving after he allegedly drove his new vehicle into several other vehicles in Cherng Talay leaving three people injured and then fleeing the scene.
Volcker’s Thai wife is alleged to have told police that he worked as a manager at a newly opened retail store* and said that he was assaulted by a local resident. However, she was unable to tell police who who assaulted him.
More police arrived at the house to escort Vockler to the police station, where his breath test result came out at 229mg.
The legal limit for drivers in Thailand who have held there licence for more than five years is 50mg of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood. For those who have held their licence for less that five years the limit is 20mgs per 100 millilitres of blood.
Mr Somchai told police that “the man was drunk and he drove into motorbikes including mine and did not stop, so I followed him”.
He added: “I drove next to him and knocked on his car door but he was too drunk to communicate. When we got further up the road he stopped his car, left it in the middle of the road and walked away from me into his home.”
Lt Col Sakol Krainara who is taking care of this case said that Vockler will be facing the charge of reckless driving and driving under the influence of alcohol.
