In order to run from the scene, the suspect climbed into a parked truck and drove it through a narrow alleyway, nearly hitting multiple pedestrians as he escaped.

The man returned to the scene soon after and was arrested on charges of physical assault, instigating terror and chaos and driving under the influence.

Police said the man’s blood alcohol content surpassed 0.165 percent. The legal limit for driving in Korea is 0.05 percent.
