Video: Shin-Soo Choo's DUI Arrest (Updated)


1 comment


Update: Morning Journal reports $775 fine and a suspended license until November 2 for Shin-Soo Choo. No jail. Also no punishment for sucking before he got injured.


One could make the argument that there could have been a language barrier issue during Choo's DUI stop in Sheffield Lake early Monday morning, with Choo perhaps not understanding fully the officer's instructions, but that would be a dumb argument. Kid blew a .201 back at the station. Below is the dash-cam video of Choo's field sobriety test if you're into that sort of thing.
