Local television actor Rui En was charged in Court today (June 22) with one count of driving without due care and consideration. The actor told the district court that she intends to plead guilty. She will be back in Court on July 1 for sentencing and could be jailed up to six months and/or fined up to S$1,000, if convicted for the offence.
Rui En’s accident was much talked about in April, when she knocked over a stationery motorbike at a carpark in Clementi. Netizens took her to task for asking the rider, ‘do you know who I am?’ after he confronted her.
Rui En subsequently issued a public apology for the accident and explained it as a “judgmental error” and “careless driving”. She further admitted that she should have handled the situation “with more tact”.
Her fan club also jumped to her defense at that time suggesting that the accident became news worthy only because an actor was involved in it.Follow us on Social Media
