The U.S. soldier who ran to North Korea got into a lot of trouble over the preceding months

The Messenger:

Three weeks later on September 25, King allegedly “pushed and punched a Korean National in the face in Dongducheon City,” according to the Army report. The Army private repeatedly refused to provide his information to Korean National Police on scene. He was detained and later identified. CNN first reported on some of King’s legal troubles. 

Later, South Korean law enforcement arrested King for “an altercation with two Korean Nationals,” and kicked a Korean National Police vehicle while “resisting apprehension.” King later attempted to flee the scene but was detained.
