Following reports that Verbal Jint was allegedly pulled over for drink-driving on the night of June 16, the rapper recently took to his Instagram to admit that he had indeed been involved in a DUI incident.
Reports from Naver state that Verbal Jint was pulled over for drink-driving at around 10PM on June 16 in the Mapo District, and reportedly had a blood alcohol concentration level of 0.067%. The rapper admitted his guilt to the police and has had his license suspended as a result.
Just yesterday, the rapper posted up this message on his Instagram in which he explains his DUI incident.
Here's an English translation of Verbal Jint's message:
“Hello. I apologize for delivering bad news.
I want to confess that four days ago, I was caught drunk driving in my neighborhood with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.067 percent. My license is expected to be suspended for 100 days.
I have no intention to come up with excuses since I’m at fault, and I’m deeply regretful of my reckless actions and neglecting the possibility of a drunk driver becoming an assailant.
I believe this is something that both cannot and should not be hidden, hence why I’m writing this post that makes me feel ashamed. Once again, I apologize for showing a disappointing side of myself.”
