Police pressed four more charges against former national sports star Jakkrit Panichpatikum who was denied bail by a court on Monday evening.
Mr Jakkrit, who was a member of the national pistol-shooting team at the Olympic Games in London in 2012, allegedly fired a gun in the air at his family home on Thursday to intimidate his wife, Nitawadee Pucharoenyos, before assaulting her and his mother, Bunchit Panichpatikum.
The father of two was detained by police on Saturday at a friend's house in the Phatthanakan area of Bangkok after he broke his pledge to surrender to police on Friday.
