Roy Cheung (張耀揚): Drinking (and Driving) in LKF Caught by Paparazzi

Roy Cheung (張耀揚) was photographed on the night of 9 March 2012, around 11 p.m. local time in Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong Island. The media reports say that within 15 minutes he drank two cans of beer on the street, while chatting with two male and one female friends. (Two of them, including the woman, were Western-looking.) Once his two male friends left, Roy pulled out his mobile phone and asked the female friend's phone number. After that, he seemed to realise that he was being photographed, tossed a beer can into a bin, and drove away in his BMW.

The reports pointed out his drink-driving, calling his behavior "self-contradictory," as Roy had commented on the danger of drink-driving when he was asked about his friend Remus Choi's car accident and arrest last year. 

I have some mixed feelings about this:
  • Drink-driving should not be tolerated...
  • But, I don't know if his blood alcohol level was exceeding the limit prescribed in Hong Kong...
  • I feel sorry for him (or any celebrity for that matter) for being photographed his private moments...
  • But, this was right out on a public street...(Is drinking cans of beer on a street common in Hong Kong?)

There is also a video report by Apple Daily HK... here, if you are interested.
