“Mr Glass has a meeting set with the public prosecutor on Monday, Dec 25, in order to report himself,” said an official of the Phuket Public Prosecutor’s office, who declined to be named, today (Dec 19).

“According to the prosecution system, a court appearance date has yet to be set. That date will be decided following the meeting on Dec 25,” said the official.

Mr Glass has endured a lengthy and public case since the gruesome incident in which an 18-wheel truck ran over and killed his partner Ms Anderson ,who was at the time six months pregnant, on Thepkrasattri Rd in front of a 7-Eleven store in Thalang. (See story here.).

Mr Glass was formally charged with reckless driving causing death on May 27 (see story here), which he denied.

He then went on to appeal for financial help for his legal team on his Youtube channel (see story here.)

Ms Anderson was a beloved member of the Youtube community and an advocate for breastfeeding, as well as mother to her five-year-old son Shaye. (See story here.)

In July, Chief of the Thalang Police station Somphong Thipaphakul confirmed that a suspicious screengrab seemingly related to the case would not be presented as evidence in Mr Glass’s case file. (See story here.)

The screengrab, which appeared to show a message sent from Mr Glass’s Facebook Messenger, was sent anonymously to The Phuket News, which duly passed the image on to the Thalang Police.

“This information can’t be investigated. It is not enough to become another charge, like attempted murder. It was reckless, it was an accident,” Col Somphong said at the time.

Advice for tourists: Never admit quilt.
Do as the romans do in Rome.
Do like they are used to in Thailand, lie or deny.
Tourists are expected to think the thai way.
Any 'other way' is strange to thai officials.

I never red in press that mr Glass admitted something, only explanation.
And I red the thai 16 wheel truck driver fled the scene.
That is a crime!
Perhaps for reason to le...

If the thai truck driver was not at 'fault' than Mr Glass should be considered as making a mistake due to lack of motorbike driving routine.
Ridiculous to keep the poor man since last May in Thailand, how long will he be held, another 5-6 months? Thai justice works very slow.

I often drive Phuket roads ( with dash cam!) seeing motorbikes with thai families of 4 swerving in front of me....

I think the difference between the Red Bull heir case and  this  one is Mr. Glass very publicly admitted his guilt as being unable to control his vehicle.

I don't think the truck driver was at fault. She unfortunately fell under the truck. I don't remember seeing any of the hundreds of boat captains, or crew members from tour boats involved with tourist deaths over the years, charged with any crime. Usually a couple wais and a 500 baht fine...

Well, one thing is for sure, the thai laws enforcement for this foreigner is a very different enforcement compared with how thai authorities ( not) handle the case of the thai Red Bull Heir.
Many different options in thai law enforcement. Very, very discriminatory.

The blind folded Lady of Justice must daily have headache.

By now, actually long time already,  the outside world watch all thi...
