A fight broke out at Scarlett Supermarket in Chinatown in the afternoon of 12 February, after a drunken man threw the shop’s products all over the place and slapped the store manager.
According to Shin Min Daily News, the drunken man, a 45-year-old, was later conveyed to the hospital and arrested by the police.
