Remember the drunk ‘Datuk’ who made headlines for assaulting a young man (who is the son of another Datuk, named Kwan Foh Kwai) and his girlfriend?
Since his arrest and release, the hot-tempered Datuk Tan released an apology video, admitting that both he and his friend were intoxicated while dining in at the restaurant in Tropicana Avenue.
Reading from a script, he said:
“I, Datuk Tan, who is also representing my friend Ang Lee, wants to say sorry to all Malaysians and especially those involved in the incident. Things escalated when my friend thought that I had been hit by the young man before he slapped him. We regret our actions as we were drunk during the incident.
I admit that my friend and I reacted unreasonably and extreme. During that time, we were both in irrational circumstances. I became very angry and embarrassed when someone younger confronted me on my behaviour.
Please do not involve our families in this matter as we are the ones who are responsible. I hope this thing will end here as we already surrendered ourselves to the police and will face any consequences.”

Although Tan and Ang Lee were released on police bail, their pending case has yet to be brought to court.
