Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo may have worried he wouldn't be able to return to Korea and come back to the United States as a result of his arrest for driving under the influence.

"If I go back to Korea, you get me, I never get back here. I'm done," Choo apparently told the arresting officer in the back of his police cruiser. "My life is done."

At least that's what I think I heard, it's a little tough considering the quality of the microphone and Choo's accented English (I would like to make it clear here, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with his accented English -- his English is a lot better than my Korean, which consists of one word --I'm just stating a fact that I have trouble understanding exactly what is said).

The Sheffield Lake (Ohio) police department released video of Choo's arrest. There seems to be some language problems, but not as many as you may expect for a non-native English speaker who had a blood alcohol content more than double the legal limit.

Here it is, via the Cleveland Plain-Dealer:

Police release video of Choo's arrest

That's a cute bubble analogy, but we the (most) people would agree that cops videos should not be accessed for public viewing. It defies the innocent before proven guilty tenet of our once righteous justice system. Once in the public domain, the court of public opinion steers prosecutors political careers. The dash cam should be kept off the internet, at least until after the trial...then you turd sniffing idiots can cast  stones, or burn crosses, whatever it is you're doing now to satisfy your insatiable hunger for human souls.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but any dash cam video taken by a police officer is considered public record and anyone in the media or an ordinary joe like you and me could go to the police department and legally ask for a copy of it for free.
