Lt Col Chalaew Taihu, who received the complaint, said that Mr Jatuporn wants Anucha to face a charge of premeditated attempted murder because he crashed his car because Anucha threw the rock at it.

Mr Jatuporn also wants Anucha to pay for the repairs to the vehicle and also the medical expenses his wife Sunisa Kongkam, 22, has incurred whilst being treated for a broken right leg and left arm at Vachira Hospital.

Lt Col Chalaew also said that Mr Jatuporn told him that he did not cut in front of Anucha’s motorbike as he had told police and that he believed the whole incident was a misunderstanding.

“Anucha honked at us and followed us,” Mr Jutporn said to Lt Col Chalaew. “I stopped my vehicle and called Anucha so we could talk about the incident. However, I got frightened when I saw Anucha approach my vehicle carrying a helmet. I drove off without saying anything,” he added.

The incident, on Thepkassattri Rd northbound in Koh Kaew, happened at about 1:10pm on Tuesday and

left Mr Jutaporn and Ms Sunisa needing hospital treatment. Luckliy, their one-year-old daughter, who was also in the vehicle, escaped from the crash unhurt
