Sports announcer denies battery accusations, claims she’s the victim
KBSN’s Choi Hee, a co-worker and her lawyer were meeting with the representative at a coffee shop in a department store when the alleged battery took place, according to Yangcheon Police. During the meeting, Choi’s lawyer and the representative had a fierce argument that devolved into a physical confrontation.
Choi insisted that she simply grabbed the arm of the management representative to stop the quarrel, emphasizing that she made no aggressive physical contact. The 25-year-old added that she felt verbally abused and blackmailed by the management company, which has insisted that she pay a financial penalty for failing to perform certain duties in an advertising contract.
The lawyer was investigated by police, and Choi visited police on Friday to serve as a witness to the incident. By Joo Kyung-don
