South Korean police question Pirates' Kang over DUI crash

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Police in South Korea are investigating Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang over whether he crashed a luxury car while driving under the influence of alcohol and then left the scene early Friday.

Police are also investigating whether Kang asked a friend to falsely report who was driving the vehicle, according to an official at Seoul's Gangnam district police station, who didn't want to be named, citing office rules.

According to police, Kang didn't stop after driving a rented BMW into a guardrail at around 2:48 a.m. while returning to his hotel in southern Seoul. The crash damaged the guardrail, and the vehicle, and the debris hit a car parked nearby, whose driver reported the matter to police.

A 29-year-old man who was in Kang's vehicle initially claimed he was behind the wheel. But police questioned Kang after the vehicle's security camera showed him driving it.

Police said Kang's blood alcohol level at the time of the crash would have been 0.084 percent, beyond the country's 0.05 percent legal limit. Kang has so far denied asking or intimidating the friend into falsely reporting to police, said the police official.

Kang, 29, signed a four-year, $11 million deal with the Pirates in 2015 after Pittsburgh paid his Korean club, the Nexen Heroes, $5 million to negotiate with the slugger. He hit .287 with 15 home runs and 58 RBIs for the Pirates during his rookie season, which ended abruptly on September when Kang injured his left knee while at the receiving end of a takeout slide by Chris Coghlan of the Chicago Cubs.

Kang hit 21 home runs and 62 RBIs in 103 games in 2016, but his second season in the majors also included an off-the-field incident in Chicago in June when a 23-year-old woman reported being assaulted by Kang inside a hotel. The woman said she blacked out, and then drifted in and out of consciousness as he sexually assaulted her. The woman's name has not been released and Kang has not been charged.

The incident in Seoul adds to a turbulent week for the Pirates, who are also exploring trade offers for All-Star centerfielder Andrew McCutchen. The 2013 NL MVP, a five-time All-Star, is coming off the worst season of his career and still has two years remaining on a contract that will pay him $14 million in 2017 and carries a $14.75 million club option for 2018.
