2PM member booked for drink driving after collision


SEOUL (AFP) - A popular member of South Korean boy band 2PM has been booked for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol after colliding with a motorcyclist early on Tuesday, police said.

Nichkhun Horvejkul, 24, was found to have a blood-alcohol content marginally over the legal limit and could have his licence suspended, a detective at Seoul's Gangnam police station said.

The motorcyclist suffered bruises but no broken bones.

Nichkhun, a Thai-American, is a rapper, dancer and occasional support vocalist for the six-member group, which is highly popular in Asia.
