Jung Ho Kang admitted to his DUI charge in a South Korea court on Wednesday.
Kang fled the scene after slamming into a guardrail on December 2 in Seoul, South Korea. It was his third DUI charge since 2009. "I deeply regret what I have done," Kang told Yonhap News. "If I can get one last chance, I will become an exemplary player to earn respect from everyone." According to Yonhap News, the court will hold a verdict hearing on March 3. It's unclear what the sentence might be or when he'll be able to rejoin the Pirates. He could also face a punishment from the Pirates, though he has agreed to enter an alcohol treatment program.
