Vorayuth is a grandson of the late Chaleo Yoovidhya, who created the energy drink Krating Daeng, or Red Bull, and co-founded the international Red Bull GmbH brand with an Austrian partner.

The new warrant followed a review of evidence previously not included in police reports, which suggested Vorayuth's car was traveling faster than previously thought, and that the suspect's blood test indicated cocaine use.

Neither Vorayuth nor the immediate Yoovidhya family have commented on the charges.

TCP Group, which owns the Thai Red Bull brand, said in July it is run by Vorayuth's uncle and not directly associated with Vorayuth, whose father has part ownership in the international brand.
