The Seoul Southern District Court on Thursday acquitted comedian Lee Chang-myung of leaving the scene of an accident after drunk driving last year, but fined him W5 million for violating traffic laws and as compensation.

Lee was booked in April of last year after slamming into a traffic light in his Porsche SUV and fleeing the scene. Police said he was drunk at the time with an estimated blood alcohol level of 0.16 percent -- enough to have his driver's license revoked.

He went into hiding for 20 hours but finally showed up at a police station, where he said he had to go to a hospital for medical care and denied driving under the influence.
