Canadian athlete, wife, and manager allegedly steal vehicle, drive drunk at Olympics

However, drunk driving in South Korea can result in up to three years in prison or a fine of almost $12,000 CDN.

Raine then proceeded to drive the vehicle with a alleged blood-alcohol level of.16, above the legal limit in South Korea of.05, according to Daegwallyeong police.

Raine, the coach and son of Canadian senator and ski legend Nancy Greene Raine, has also apologized to his teammates, friends and famous family. Duncan and his wife were each fined 1 million won ($930), according to a police officer at the Gangwon Provincial Police Agency, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak with the press. They were released after questioning but remain under investigation.

"I would like to apologize profusely for my inexcusable actions", Raine said in a statement released by the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC)".

According to Canadian broadcaster CBC, the 35-year-old and at least one other member of the country's delegation were involved in the incident in the early hours of this morning. "We have confirmation that individuals attached to our team were involved in the investigation and they are cooperating".

"We have an athlete's agreement that all athletes do sign before they agree to come to the Olympic games that speaks to appropriate codes of conduct and the values of the Olympic committee", said Chris Overholt, CEO of the Canadian Olympic Committee, at a press conference.

Raine offered his statement saying in part, "Words are not enough to express how sorry I am".

"There'll be an appropriate time to do that, it's not now, it's an evolving matter", Overholt said. "Until we know the results of the investigation, we're not going to be able to provide further information at this time".

Duncan finished in eighth place in the skicross competition, but he and his partners get a gold medal in stupidity for this latest performance. "My best skiing of the season and an effort that I'm proud of".
