In August, TVB actor Mat Yeung (楊明) crashed his vehicle into a stone curb and nearly knocked down a traffic sign. Refusing to take a breathalyzer, Mat was arrested on the spot with suspicions of DUI. It would be his second DUI charge; his first occurred in 2005.
Charged with three counts of misdemeanors, Mat made his first court appearance on November 6. The hearing was rescheduled to December to allow time for the defendant to collect witness testimonies and a medical report.
Despite his court appearance, Mat is still working as schedule. He is currently busy with the filming of TVB’s My Family Has No Hardships <我家無難事> alongside Joe Ma (馬德鐘). In media interviews, Mat stated that while he is concerned about his upcoming court appearance, going to work helps him relieve stress.
Mat expressed his regret for crashing into a historical landmark. He will be charged $5,000 Hong Kong dollars for the incident. He hopes the landmark can be restored.
Asking if he would quit drinking, Mat admitted that he won’t, expressing alcohol isn’t a recreational drug. He further clarified that he was never charged for DUI. That was only claims made by the media. He stressed that the incident in August was considered a traffic accident.
