On July 10, 2010 Jessica C. was withdrawing money from an ATM in Tsim Sha Tsui and took the HK$600 left behind by the person before her. The whole incident was captured on the bank's security camera. The day before, Jessica was arrested and charged for 'stealing'. She spent the most terrifying night at home and yesterday she resume work, heading out to Taiwan to shoot a new film. At 6:35am, Jessica stepped out of her residence in Causeway Bay accompanied by her assistant. Wearing sunglasses, Jessica walked out and was welcomed by over 20 reporters surrounding her for interviews. At first she maintained a smile and waved: "Good Morning!" She appeared relaxed and stood still to allow reporters take pictures. Jessica cooperated and said: "I want to talk more too because this is a huge misunderstanding. I am still handling the situation now and hope you all accept my apology. This incident made me really unhappy. (Did you regret it and will you apologize to the victim?) If I upset or hurt anyone, I am willing to apologize. (Are you afraid your reputation might be affected?) You will understand me, thank you all."
When asked about her taking the HK$600 from the ATM machine that the person before her left behind, Jessica had no comment. Her assistant expressed she does not want to discuss this matter, and the two left in a 7-seater van. Reporters took 4 cars to chase after Jessica, then her driver suddenly drove aggressively. Sometimes he drove slowly, sometimes he drove fast. Quite dangerous driving.
At the airport, Jessica got out of the car and walked through the crowd of reporters with the help of her assistant. When reporters tried to interview her again, Jessica became impatient. When asked if her family is worried about her, Jessica started tearing up. She said: "I'm really sorry. I do hope to tell you more, but I really can't. I'm sorry everyone." With a shaky voice, Jessica apologizes again for the 4th time.
Her manager, Christine, reveals Jessica is heading to Taiwan to shoot an action film, but did not reveal who she will be working with. Jessica will return to Hong Kong in November. When asked how Jessica is feeling? Christine said Jessica's emotions still hasn't recovered: "This year, she hasn't been in HK for long, of course she's not feeling well. I think, give her some time to handle the situation. At this point, she has put her emotions behind her and focuses on her work."
