Kang Jung-ho of the Pittsburgh Pirates is going to lose his driver's license after he was caught drunk driving, police said Monday.
Driving a BMW under the influence last Friday, Kang hit a guard rail near Samseong Subway Station in Seoul and fled the scene.
A friend who was in the passenger seat later reported him to police.
Kang's blood alcohol content level was 0.084 percent, way above the legal limit of 0.05 percent.
Kang is a repeat offender. He had his license suspended after a drunk driving arrest in August 2009 and revoked again after a drunk-driving accident in May 2011.
