According to the Seoul Kangnam police, Kim was seen drinking at 10:40 a.m. on July 30th. He had driven his Mercedes Benz about 200 meters down the road. A concerned citizen in the same restaurant he was in suspected that he was intoxicated and called the police after seeing him stumbling into the driver’s seat of his car.
Upon examination, Kim’s blood alcohol level was found to be above the allowed 0.129 percent. This results in the suspension of his driving license.
