Malaysians and Singaporeans alike are bound to be familiar with the popular club franchise, Zouk.

Well, most recently, the founder of Zouk, Lincoln Cheng, landed himself in trouble with the law.

Earlier this year, the 70-year-old businessman reportedly had dinner at Ion Orchard, Singapore, along with two glasses of red wine. He then got into his car to drive home.



During his drive home, he ran two red lights and ended up crashing into the left side of a taxi, causing it to hit a metal pole supporting a sheltered walkway!

After failing a breathalyser test, Cheng was arrested on the spot.

In October, he pleaded guilty to one count of drink driving, and was sentenced to one week in jail on Wednesday (22nd November). On top of that, he has also been banned from driving for three years. Cheng was also granted bail of $15,000 (approx. RM45,700) pending appeal.

Despite his sentence, he was allowed to travel to Germany, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Antarctica and Britain with his family from 24th November to 27th December, according to The Star.

Thankfully this issue has already been resolved by the authorities.

Remember to never drink and drive, guys!
