Choi Jong Hoon Booked For Bribing Police To Cover Up Past Drunk Driving Incident
New evidence indicates that former FTISLAND member Choi Jong Hoon tried to bribe the police officer who caught him drunk driving in 2016.
On March 21, the police announced that they booked Choi Jong Hoon for offering 2 million won (approximately $1,778) at the scene to cover up his drunk driving incident.
A source from the police said, “We have booked Choi Jong Hoon for now because we received a testimony from the officer that [Choi Jong Hoon] showed desire to offer bribes to him.” It was further revealed that the police officer rejected the offer at the time.
The source continued, “We will confirm how [Choi Jong Hoon] offered the bribes, how [the offer] was rejected, and how [the situation] was concluded, through further investigation.”
Meanwhile, the police also booked the lawyer of Jung Joon Young (from the singer’s 2016 case against his ex-girlfriend) for charges of destroying evidence. The lawyer allegedly attempted to destroy evidence while the singer was undergoing investigation for illegally filming his ex-girlfriend.
