He knelt in front of about 30,000 people and said, At the time, I was a model for a chaffeur service, and I didnt call. It was because I was afraid that they would be upset if I called the service for such a short distance, saying Im a young person who was fooling around.

He revealed that the reason why he chose the blood test instead of the breathalyzer test. He said, If I chose the blood test, it would have given me time for my shows at the time and I thought that within the week that it would have taken for them to get the results, I could get everything done that I needed to.

He then said that he was living a new life after the incident. He said, No matter what I try to do, Im not free because I dont have anonymity. I get pictures taken of me even if Im abroad, and if I grow out my beard, people say Ive given up. Seeing that my situation and how Im portrayed in photos are so different, I realized that whats most important is not how I look to other people, but my own happiness.

He concluded by saying, Its cool to me that I opened my own bookstore, and that Im raising a donkey, and that I only do shows that I want to despite them having low ratings. I didnt know this when I took it easy but after Ive fallen down once, I looked back on life. Im very sorry that the reason why I did that was because of drunk driving, but if it werent for that, I wouldnt have had the time to reflect on my life like this.
