K-Pop singer Hwanhee charged with DUI

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.

Boxer Adrien Broner charged with DUI

From TMZ:

TMZ Sports first reported on Friday night the former four-division world champion was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) about 8:45 p.m. local time in Miami Beach, Fla.

Broner was being held in a Miami-Dade County jail, where the bond was set at $1,000. It is unknown if Broner has been released as the county search record hadn’t been updated at the time of publication.

The outlet also obtained the police report, which stated officers were informed of Broner being passed out inside his Rolls-Royce SUV that had the engine running in the middle of traffic. When the cops approached the vehicle, Broner was “unconscious, but breathing”. They tried to bang on the window but ultimately had to shake it to wake him. A groggy Broner woke up, and police shifted the car into park.

A field sobriety test was conducted. Broner failed and was subsequently arrested.

This is the second time the 30-year-old Broner was sent to jail in the last three weeks. On Feb. 21 in Las Vegas, the day before Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder 2, Broner was charged with one count of misdemeanor trespassing.

Free Agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins arrested for third DUI

From Bleacher Report:

Free-agent NFL tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested Monday and charged with DUI in Gig Harbor, Washington, the city where he played high school football.

TMZ Sports reported the news Saturday and noted Seferian-Jenkins also faces counts of driving with a suspended license and operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock device.

It’s the third DUI arrest for the 27-year-old University of Washington product.

In 2013, Seferian-Jenkins was sentenced to one day in jail after pleading guilty to a drunken driving charge before his final season of college football with the Huskies.

He was also arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI in 2016.

Seferian-Jenkins told ESPN’s Rich Cimini in 2017 he’d attended an outpatient rehab program because of his use of alcohol to deal with “dormant issues”:

Cowboys WR Bryant arrested for DUI

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.

Alex Jones arrested for drunk driving

From the Daily Beast:

Prominent right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was arrested early Tuesday morning on charges of driving while intoxicated, according to law enforcement.

Jones, who as host of the Austin-based InfoWars conspiracy theory outlet has become a prominent force on the fringe right, was arrested on a class-B misdemeanor DWI charge, according to a spokeswoman for the Travis County sheriff’s department. Jones was booked into the Travis County Jail in Austin at 12:37 AM, and released on bond at 4:11 AM.

Court records about Jones’s arrest weren’t immediately available. InfoWars didn’t respond to a request for comment.

An article on the InfoWars website claimed that Jones was “caught up in a Travis Co. DWI dragnet.” In the story, Jones said he had been “drinking a small amount of sake at a Japanese restaurant.”

Jones announced his arrest on a Tuesday episode of his show, claiming that he had blown under the legal limit of 0.08 Blood Alcohol Content. Texas law, however, allows for a driver to be charged with a DWI even if they’re under the limit, if they’re considered to be impaired.

NBA player Allen Crabbe get DUI reduced to lesser charge

From NBC Sports:

Allen Crabbe – officially with the Nets, a trade to the Hawks pending – was charged with DUI in June.

Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office:

An NBA player arrested last summer for driving under the influence entered a no contest plea today, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Allen Lester Crabbe III, 27, entered the plea to one misdemeanor count of engaging in a motor vehicle exhibition of speed on a highway.

Crabbe was immediately sentenced to three years of summary probation and ordered to complete DUI first offender and Mothers Against Drunk Driving programs.

Crabbe is now a free agent after a buyout with the Timberwolves. With this plea deal, he will likely avoid the two-game suspension typical of a drunk-driving conviction.
