Nam Tae Hyun Booked For Drunk Driving

Former WINNER member Nam Tae Hyun has been booked by the police for driving under the influence of alcohol.

On March 8, the Seoul Gangnam Police Station officially announced that they were in the midst of investigating Nam Tae Hyun for drunk driving.

According to the police, at approximately 3:20 a.m. KST that day, Nam Tae Hyun opened his car door while parked on the roadside and hit a taxi that was passing by, breaking the taxi’s side mirror. Afterwards, he drove about 20 meters (approximately 66 feet).

When the police arrived at the scene of the accident, Nam Tae Hyun’s blood alcohol content was found to be 0.114 percent, a level high enough for his driver’s license to be revoked (0.08 percent or higher).

Although the police immediately booked Nam Tae Hyun on the spot, he was so severely intoxicated that they chose to have him return home, to be further questioned at a later time.

Before returning home, the singer told the police that he was waiting for a designated driver service at the time of the incident.

A spokesperson for the police commented, “We plan to call Nam back in to investigate the details of the accident.”
