Canadian Olympic skier Dave Duncan, his wife and his trainer were taken in by South Korean police after driving off in a pink Hummer in Pyeongchang on Saturday, according to Reuters.
Local police pulled the vehicle over to discover Canadian technical skiing coach Willy Raine behind the wheel of the Hummer with a blood-alcohol level of 0.16, over 4 times the legal limit in South Korea. He was charged with drunk driving. Alpine skier Duncan and his wife Maja were all charged with car theft.
Duncan competed in skier cross finishing in eighth place on Wednesday.
For now, the three Canadians are restricted from leaving South Korea. Their case will be sent to South Korean prosecution and, unless the alleged offense is deemed a serious crime, Raine, Duncan and his wife will be able to leave the country after paying a fine.
The couple released a joint apology, noting: “We engaged in behavior that demonstrated poor judgement and was not up to the standards expected of us as Members of the Canadian Olympic Team or as Canadians.”
