Eric Tsang (曾志偉) was arrested in a police investigation involving the criminal intimidation and physical assault of restaurateur, Kenny Wee (黃浩).
A verbal crossfire had allegedly occurred between Eric Tsang and Kenny Wee at Karmen Cheng’s (鄭嘉雯) wedding banquet on December 5. Eric spoke up on behalf of Hilary Tsui (徐濠縈), who was reported to be involved in a drug taking incident at Kenny’s restaurant, and allegedly intimidated Kenny. Although Kenny said he was physically slapped by a male actor, eyewitnesses at the wedding did not see any conflicts.
The Hong Kong police arrested Eric Tsang on the morning of December 19, stating that the entertainer is assisting in the investigation of a criminal intimidation and attack case. Eric was released on $1,000 HKD bail that afternoon, and he is to report back to the police station in mid-January 2013.
The Police Public Relations Bureau stated, “After a thorough investigation on the reported December 5 attack case by the crime unit of the Central Police District Headquarters, the case will now be handled as a simple attack and criminal intimidation incident. Today, the Central Police District Headquarters arrested a suspect, 59-year-old Mr. Tsang, to assist in the investigation. He is released on bail, and he is to report back to the police station in mid-January 2013.”
Eric refused to comment on his arrest, but happily allowed the press to snap pictures of him as he left the police station. Eric assured that his mood is not affected by the incident, and he even had the press snap a picture of him buying that day’s paper at a nearby newsstand, exclaiming that he wanted to read his own news.
Eric will continue work as usual. He also held an “End of the World” party with his friends the previous night.
Kenny Wee Releases Statement
Last weekend, Hilary Tsui (徐濠縈) and Josie Ho (何超儀) held a press conference to clarify their innocence in a claimed drug scandal that occurred at Kenny Wee’s restaurant one year ago. Through their lawyers, the celebrities condemned Kenny for framing them in alleged recreational drug use. They asserted that they would take the appropriate legal action if Kenny did not silence himself in the next 48 hours. Kenny abided by their conditions.
On December 19, Kenny’s restaurant, Taiwan Yiping Huadiao Chicken, released a statement to the media, expressing that they hold the rights to sue those who defamed their restaurant with “false accusations” and “slander”. The statement also stressed that their restaurant has always had security cameras, hinting that a tape may be in possession.
The statement is as follows:
In regards to the recent rumors, false accusations, and slander directed at Taiwan Yiping Huadiao Chicken due to the “Artist Dinner” incident in Hong Kong, the Board of Directors of Taiwan Yiping Huadiao Chicken restaurant chain release the following statement on December 19, 2012:
