Micky Yoochun’s manager has been booked without detention for assaulting a female high school student.
Team 3 of the Western Hwasung Police Station stated that, “During the interrogation, Mr. Park (The manager) admitted to pushing the student’s shoulder,” and “Swearing at someone or pushing someone is considered assault, so he was booked without detention.”
According to the police, the manager admitted to his actions against the student. The police stated, “It doesn’t matter whether or not Mr. Park slapped the student or not. Mr. Park has already admitted to his crime.” They also added, “There will be an additional investigation with the CCTV footage and statements for the witnesses.”
The case will be handed over to the Prosecution next month. There is a high possibility that Mr. Park will have his indictment suspended or receive a fine. A representative of the investigation team involved stated, “Because this is an assault case, it will end quickly with a suspension of his indictment or a fine,” and “Which of the two punishments he receives will depend on his past criminal records.”
A settlement between Mr. Park and the student would not greatly affect the penalty Mr. Park will receive. The police stated, “A settlement would only change the severity of the penalty,” and “If they were to reach a settlement, Mr. Park would more likely receive a suspension of indictment or a smaller fine.”
Mr. Park has been investigated by the police for assaulting a fan of Micky Yoochun who was taking a picture of the celebrity. Mr. Park stated, “The student was swearing profusely at me, so I lightly pushed her on the shoulder,” and “Her allegations that I slapped her are completely false.”
Mr. Park stated that he will accept the police’s judgment. He stated, “Because the police have stated that even pushing someone’s shoulder is assault, I will take the penalty,” and “I was hoping to reach a settlement but the student keeps saying that she was slapped and won’t back down. So, I have decided that it would be better to just receive the punishment I am given.”
