They could have charged him with a misdemeanor as a first time offender, which mean he would eventually have had the opportunity come out of this with a clear record (like. Traffic violations), he now (I hope I'm mistaken)has a criminal record. A lot of countries won't give him work visas as a result, which means no touring with BigBang. God I hate them, they could have gone a heavy fine and and been done with it.
