Prosecutors have requested a preliminary arrest warrant for rapper Jang Yong-jun (21, active name Noel), the son of National Power lawmaker Jang Je-won. Jang is accused of assaulting a police officer who asked for a breathalyzer while unlicensed while on probation.
According to the legal community on the 7th, the Human Rights Protection Department of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office decided to file a request for a warrant for Jang after conducting a pre-arrest interview with Jang’s lawyer.
The Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office has been making a decision on whether to request a warrant after interviewing the suspect or his lawyer for the suspect for whom the police applied for an arrest warrant in advance since July.
Jang is charged with driving a Mercedes-Benz car in Banpo-dong, Seocho-gu, Seoul around 10:30 pm on the 18th of last month, and having a contact accident with another car.
Earlier, on the 1st, the police applied for an arrest warrant for Jang in advance, applying charges such as violation of the Road Traffic Act (refusal to measure alcohol, driving without a license, damage to property), injury, and obstruction of the execution of official duties.
The interrogation of the suspect before arrest for Jang will be held at 10:30 am on the 12th at the Seoul Central District Court.
Jang was indicted on charges of ‘switching drivers’ after causing a drunk traffic accident in September 2019, and was sentenced to one year and six months in prison and two years of probation in June last year. In April, he was sent to the prosecution on charges of assaulting a passerby in Busan, but after reaching an agreement with the victim, he was given the ‘no right to prosecute’.
