Gyeonggi Bundang Police said Monday that they are reviewing an arrest warrant for the 33-year-old Chinese national surnamed Lee.

Lee is in Korea on a three-month visitor permit. The car he drove belonged to his older brother, who lives here.

Lee admitted to the wrongdoing and told the police that he had been angry that he had become addicted to games created by the company. He said he had committed the act on impulse, after drinking.

Lee’s blood alcohol level was over the legal limit at around the time of the incident. He does not have a valid driver’s license.
