K-Pop boy band Super Junior’s Kang In, who was booked for beating up a patron in a bar brawl a month ago, was booked again Friday for fleeing the scene after causing a traffic accident under the influence of alcohol, police said.
On the band’s Web site, Kang posted a long letter to apologize to his fans. “I have nothing to say but say sorry thousands of times. I should have been more cautious but I’m really sorry for disappointing you again.”
According to the police, Kang, while driving a rental car at a speed of 40-50 kilometers per hour, caused an accident involving two taxis on a road in Gangnam, southern Seoul, at 3.10 a.m., Thursday. He hit the first taxi, which was pushed forward and hit the other cab in front.
The moment after the accidents, he got out of the car and ran from the scene. About six hours later, he surrendered himself to the police station in Gangnam. His blood alcohol level was 0.081 percent, high enough to have his license revoked.
Two taxi drivers and two passengers involved in the incident sustained no major injuries.
Police asked Kang to report to the police station Friday for investigation, but he had failed to appear by late afternoon. A police officer said they will summon him again.
