From Korea Joongang Daily:
Hwanhee, a member of veteran pop duo Fly to the Sky, was charged with driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol on Saturday.
Yongin Seobu Police Station said Hwanhee, whose real name is Hwang Yoon-seok, was booked without physical detention for drunk driving.
The 38-year-old singer was questioned by police after his Mercedes-Benz hit a Hyundai Avante sedan that was changing lanes on a road in Yongin, south of Seoul, around 6 a.m. An insurance agent dispatched to the scene reported the accident to police, suspecting that Hwanhee had been drinking.
Police said the singer’s blood alcohol level was 0.061 percent, which is enough to warrant the revocation of his driver’s license.
Police said Hwanhee admitted to drinking and driving, adding that he will summoned next week to talk about the DUI accident.
Hwanhee’s management agency, H2media, later released a statement apologizing for Hwanhee’s drunk driving, saying that the singer will fully comply with the police investigation and will accept punishment.
Unlike Illinois, where the “legal limit” for a DUI is 0.08, Korea recently reduced its limit to from 0.06 to 0.03.
From the Dallas Morning News:
Cowboys wide receiver Ventell Bryant, who contributed mostly on special teams as an undrafted rookie last year, was arrested early Wednesday morning in his hometown for an alleged DUI, a Tampa police spokesperson said.
Bryant, 23, was arrested around 2:45 a.m. ET following a traffic stop for driving without his headlights turned on, police said. According to a police summary of his arrest affidavit, Bryant “exhibited several clues of impairment and admitted to drinking several margaritas.”
He failed a field sobriety test and later produced a blood-alcohol level of .102 and .099. Those measurements exceed the .08 legal limit in Florida. Bryant posted $500 bond and was released from custody shortly before noon ET.
A year ago former NFL running back Darren McFadden was arrested for DWI when he was found asleep at the wheel in a Whataburger drive-thru. Now he’s going to jail.
McFadden pleaded guilty to drunk driving and got sentenced to four days in jail, according to TMZ.com.
The deal also will result in McFadden paying a fine and getting his license suspended for 90 days.
McFadden was a star at running back who twice finished second in Heisman Trophy voting. The Raiders made him the fourth overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft and signed him to a six-year, $60 million contract. He played seven years with the Raiders and then three more years with the Cowboys.
