As news about Noh Hong Chul’s recent drunk driving incident subsides, the investigation is now focusing on the blood analysis taken at the time of the incident.
According to Gangnam Police Station, the earliest date for the result to return will be November 17th, as they try to determine the level of alcohol Noh Hong Chul induced that night. As of the moment, the investigators won’t be able to determine a case and cannot summon the entertainer until the results come back. It was also cited that as Noh Hong Chul’s case happened on a weekend, there is a higher possibility that the blood analysis might take even longer.
The police measure alcohol intoxication in two ways, breath analysis or blood sampling. In general, drivers are normally asked to take the breath analysis test, but as Noh Hong Chul declined to participate in the procedure, a blood sample was procured instead. With only the blood test taken at the time of the incident, the investigation cannot continue until the results are handed in.
Netizens, on the other hand, are also curious as to what the results and its outcome will be.
Since the incident, Noh Hong Chul has apologised to fans for his behaviour and has stepped down his role in various entertainment programs.
