A Malaysian pop star has been arrested in Hong Kong, a week after he admitted attacking a fellow singer.
Gary Chaw was arrested on Friday (02Oct09) for alleged common assault after he was caught on camera fighting Justin Lo on 23 September (09).
The star admitted to the crime a day later (24Sep09) and said, "Justin did not try to injure me or hit back a single time. This was obviously not a fight. I lost control. I made the mistake that I feared the most. I don't have any excuses. I don't have any reasons. I was plain wrong. I'm willing to accept full responsibility, full punishment."
Chaw has been freed on bail while the case is investigated and will report back to officials in early November (09), according to police spokesman Lawrence Li.
Common assault carries a maximum penalty of one year's imprisonment in Hong Kong.
