First, become rich. Second, buy a BMW. Third, have breast implants and lots of plastic surgery. Fourth, become an Internet idol on Facebook. Fifth, scream at the police. Sixth, pretend you want to commit suicide. Seventh, tell somebody to bring your cigarettes and start smoking next to a damaged car leaking petrol. Eighth, pretend to pray and act crazy.
Do all this, and the Thai police will let you go without even giving you a breathalyser or any other test for sobriety. This is exactly what a woman known as “Millionaire Pretty”, in the media, did on Tuesday. So far, she has not been charged with any crime.
Private Tye says “well done Pretty”. What's the point in becoming rich if you can not have a bit of fun driving your car into people? After all, the only person sent to hospital was a taxi driver, and they don't count for anything do they?

Readers will be surprised to learn that Pretty is not an actress, but with acting abilities like these we are sure she will soon be a star on the Thai soap operas.
The full story from Khaosod English:
BANGKOK — Police did not conduct a sobriety test on a businesswoman who caused traffic mayhem in downtown Bangkok during Tuesday’s rush hour because she was meditating and could not communicate with officers, a policeman said Thursday.
Kritrada Tabtimphol, who’s known online as a successful internet idol, was allowed to go to hospital without any charges, prompting fresh allegations police shielded her from the full force of law, similar to other cases of high-profile car accidents involving the rich and the privileged. As of Thursday, she had not been charged with any crime.
“She was meditating at the scene,” said Papinawit Senaplaeng, an officer at Huai Khwang Police Station who oversaw the case. “She was out of her wits. She couldn’t give any testimony.”
On Tuesday afternoon, the 28-year-old woman called “Millionaire Pretty” in the media crashed her BMW into eight cars on the busy Ratchadapisek Road, causing three injuries. Kritrada, who rose to online fame for her beauty product and modeling business, was seen behaving erratically and talking incoherently in the aftermath of the crash. At one point she appeared to be praying.
A new traffic law requires police to test motorists involved in accidents for alcohol or drug use, Cpt. Papinawit said. Any refusal automatically leads to a charge of DUI, but he said the protocol did not apply to Kritrada.
“No, no, no, it isn’t considered a refusal,” Papinawit said by telephone. “She couldn’t communicate [with police].”
