Hong Man Choi Charged With Assaulting Female Patron at His Bar

(“Please don’t eat me….Please don’t eat me.”)

Hong Man Choi is in a bit of hot water with the police in his hometown of Gwangjin, Korea where he stands accused this week of assaulting a female customer at a pub he owns.

According to police reports, the 7-foot-2, 367-pound K-1 veteran punched a woman in her 20s in the head on Saturday after she refused to pay her tab, which she claimed was too high for what she consumed. After a brief argument over the inflated amount of her bill, Choi allegedly became incensed after the woman cursed at him and attacked her.

News of the booking was first reported by the Korea Times.

The South Korean fighter, who has not competed in two years since his DREAM 11 loss to Minowaman in October 2009, posted a message on his website denying punching the woman.

“She verbally insulted me. I just could not take it anymore. I just pushed her a little bit. I swear that I never punched her,’’ he wrote.

Well, if you just pushed her… Obviously Choi isn’t familiar with what constitutes an assault, especially when the person on the receiving end of the pushing is a 20-year-old woman.

Choi went on to make a very Chael Sonnen-esque claim about the charges.

“I regret that I pushed her. But I was so mad at the time. I do not want to make a fuss about of it. But I will keep an eye on what she does,” he continued. “If I am lying, I will quit my career as a K-1 fighter.’’

Choi hasn’t fought in K-1 since 2008. Maybe he’s heard the rumors that K-1 may be folding within the year and he’s hoping for a loophole if found guilty.

In the middle of all the arguing and fussing, he should have told the DJ to stop the music, wave his hands in the air and get everyones attention, and just pull out his massive dong.

In the words of the immortal Dennis Farina in Big Trouble: "There was a time when you actually had to hit someone."

Unfortunately this rule does not apply to two people with a 4 foot height discrepancy between them. And one of them is a woman.

The real argument was that Choi was wearing one of her bracelets on his finger and wouldn't give it back.

Hey, who knows? Maybe pushing doesn't constitutes an assault in Korea. Not every country has to be as pussy as America, Canada and Western Europe.
