The wallayu case was postponed seven times. Until April 27, 2017, prosecutors finally accused him of driving rudely and causing death. And failed to help the victims.

Run away from the police

In the early morning of September 3, 2012, Thai police constable Weixian grambashuo was hit by a silver black Ferrari while patrolling on the well-known sukunyi road in Bangkok on the morning of September 3, 2012, and died on the spot.

At first, the Xu family claimed that the driver was not wallayu himself, but hired driver. However, the police soon confirmed that it was the 27 year old wallayus car that night, and its alcohol test showed that he met the drinking driving standard. Wallayus lawyer argued that wallayu fled the scene because he was eager to tell his father what had happened, and then drank a little wine to calm down his mood. It was not drunk driving.

According to the surveillance and comprehensive evidence at that time, the police also found that wallayu was speeding and he drove to 170 km / h on the 80 km / h road.

In the face of all kinds of hard evidence, vorayau chose to surrender, but his father paid 500000 baht (about 100000 yuan at that time) to bail him out.

Shortly after the incident, kamronwit thopkrajang, then Bangkoks police chief, threatened to resign if you dont bring those who killed police officers to justice! But in September 2013, after volayu refused to appear in court for the seventh time, when the prosecutor ordered the police to arrest him, the police did not act.

On bail, wallayu still lives a luxurious life, not only in luxury resorts, staying in luxury hotels at $1000 a night, enjoying high-quality food, but also taking private planes to travel to many countries, watching F1 competitions and so on.
