Son Seung Won Revealed To Have Asked Actor Jung Hwi To Take Blame For Drunk Driving
Son Seung Won tried to avoid getting blamed for his behavior.
On January 2, the court recognized the crime of Son Seung Won and issued an arrest warrant on charges of fleeing the scene, dangerous driving, driving under the influence, and driving without a license.
The actor was first caught driving under the influence on December 26 in the neighborhood of Chungdam when he crashed his car into another vehicle.
Just as the public thought the case had been concluded, more news came to light and reported that on the night of the accident, Son Seung Won asked Jung Hwi, who was in the car with him, to take the blame for his actions.
According to the police, Son Seung Won refused to take the breathalyzer test and argued that Jung Hwi was driving the vehicle when he was caught. When the police asked Jung Hwi if he had been driving, he initially answered that he was indeed the driver. However, he later confessed that Son Seung Won was the one who was driving.
Jung Hwi said, “He asked me to take the blame because this wasn’t his first time violating the traffic laws. It was hard for me to reject his request since he is a senior actor.”
Furthermore, several witnesses confirmed that they saw Son Seung Won getting out of the driver’s seat, which was later confirmed by a nearby security camera. In the end, the actor admitted that he drove the vehicle.
