Actor charged with drunk driving

Taipei, Aug. 11 (CNA) Taiwanese singer-actor Huang Chung-kun (???) was charged Tuesday with public safety offenses for driving under the influence of alcohol. Taipei prosecutors asked the court for a summary judgement on the case after five days of investigation. The 56-year-old actor was arrested in Taipei Aug. 6, after a roadside sobriety test showed that he had a breath alcohol content level of 0.88 milligrams per liter, well above the legal threshold of 0.15 mg/l. According to prosecutors, Huang said he was driving back to his residence after drinking at a restaurant with friends late on Aug. 5, before he was stopped by the police.
