Yesterday morning at 9am, Amigo Chui went to the court hearing for his drunk driving case. Wearing a dress shirt and a pair of glasses, Amigo appeared calm. The court said on October 26, 2010 at 3:30am, Amigo was driving on northbound Tseung Kwan O, near a police road block. He was stopped by the police and tested for alcohol content. The results showed that the alcohol content in his body was up to 55mg. On that same day at 4:30am, he was at the police station for a breathe test and the results showed 35mg, surpassing the 22mg maximum. He was unwilling to provide further blood or urine testing and was released on bail.
Yesterday afternoon, at 12:05pm, Amigo appeared outside the courthouse and generously stopped for interviews with the media and pictures. He expressed that he respects the court's decision: "I have to wait 14 days when the community service report comes out before I get sentenced." During the time, iCable reporters came to ask questions, but he ignored them. He later apologized to reporters: "Sorry, I cannot accept your interview."
Asked if the court decision was expected? Amigo said: "I asked my lawyer already, the worst case should be community service, a fibe and license suspension. Right now, taxi is my transportation. (Don't need to go to jail, relieved?) Cannot say it like that, have to take responsibility of mistakes!" Amigo already has 4 different traffic convictions, will he quit drinking because of this? He said with hesitation: "Actually it's pretty hard, but I will try my best to cut down on the drinking, I won't drive after drinking again!" With that said, he got into a 7-seater van and left with his friend for lunch.
