Comedian Cleared of Drunk Driving

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.

Korean Woman Sentenced To Prison For Biting Drunk Mans Tongue After He Tried To Kiss Her

A woman who was forcibly kissed by a man is now being sentenced to prison after biting his tongue in self-defense.

On February 16 of last year, a 46-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman were drinking together at a cafe in Incheon when the man supposedly demanded sex from the woman while forcibly kissing her. As an act of self-defense, the woman bit his tongue to try and stop him. The man received severe injuries as a result of the bite and took 7 weeks to heal.

The unnamed woman who testified in court, explained how the man had hit her, grabbed her, and forced himself on her. She has now been sentenced to six months in prison, with a two-year suspended sentence by Incheons 12th Criminal Courts chief judge.
