Actor kwon Sang-woo is likely to be fined 5 million won ($4,200) for a recent hit-and-run.

The Seoul Central Prosecutors' Office said Tuesday it had requested the court to fine the 34-year-old actor.

But if accident victims oppose the decision, the actor will stand trial, in which he could be given a jail sentence.

He was booked by police early last month for plowing into two cars in Cheongdam-dong, southern Seoul.

According to witnesses, after hitting a car parked in an alley on the morning of June 12, Kwon kept driving to seemingly flee the scene but soon rammed into another car ― this time a patrol car. He drove for a further 300 meters, ignoring orders from the police to stop, then hit a tree in a parking lot nearby. He left his car and ran off, police said.

Prosecutors suspect he drove under the influence of alcohol, but fell short of proving it during subsequent questioning.

Turning up at a police station two day after the accidents, Kwon testified: "I didn't drink alcohol at that time". Since two days had passed, the investigators were unable to conduct a sobriety test.

권상우 뺑소니로 500만원 벌금

배우 권상우가 사고 후 미조치로 벌금 500만원의 약식 기소를 당했다. 이에 대한 네티즌들의 반응은 싸늘하다.

13일 서울중앙지검은 경찰차량 등을 들이받고 뺑소니한 혐의로 권상우를 벌금 500만원에 약식 기소했다고 밝혔다.

권 씨는 지난 6월 12일 새벽 서울 강남구 청담동의 한 골목길에서 자신의 승용차를 몰고 가다 길가에 주차된 승용차와 경찰차를 잇달아 들이받고, 자신의 차를 버리고 달아난 혐의로 입건됐다.

권 씨는 지난 6월 14일 경찰 조사에서 "음주운전은 하지 않았고 갑자기 경찰차가 따라와 놀라 달아났다"고 주장한 것으로 알려졌다. 사건을 넘겨받은 검찰은 지난 9일 권 씨를 직접 불러 사고 경위 등을 조사했다.

검찰 관계자는 "권 씨가 음주운전 사실을 극구 부인했고, 사건 관계인을 상대로 한 조사에서도 증거를 찾을 수 없었다"고 전했다.
