Reported DUI

A University of Georgia student was arrested and charged with DUI, underage possession or consumption of alcohol and failure to maintain lane Saturday at 1:07 a.m., according to a UGA Police report.

The arresting officer reportedly saw a driver in a black Honda Accord staring at his police car while driving down Williams Street. The officer reportedly made a u-turn and followed the vehicle. The vehicle reportedly turned onto Oconee Street and hit the curb with the car’s right rear tire. 

The officer pulled the car over and the driver was identified as Sunkun Kim, 20. 

The officer reportedly smelled the “moderate and distinct odor commonly associated with alcoholic beverages” and asked Kim how much he had to drink that night. Kim reportedly responded that he “doesn’t really drink,” then said he “had a drink while he was eating dinner.” The officer reportedly asked Kim to get out of the car and performed a field sobriety test. Following the test, the officer “felt the driver was under the influence of alcohol to the point where he was less safe.” The officer then reportedly placed Kim under arrest and took him to the Athens-Clarke County Police Department. At the police department, Kim reportedly blew a 0.03 on a breath test. 

He was then transported to the  Clarke County Jail, according to the report.

Kim was unavailable for comment to The Red & Black.
