Actor-Producer Arun Vijay, who was charged for drunken driving when he crashed his car into a police vehicle stalled outside the Nungambakkam police station early on Saturday morning, surrendered to the police on Tuesday.

According to reports, after the accident occurred, Arun Vijay left with his father and veteran actor Vijaykumar, promising to turn up for an inquiry by the traffic police, but failed to do so. Amidst reports on Tuesday that the actor had absconded, he surrendered at the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Traffic (South). He was produced before the Magistrate Court, and was later let off on bail.

Meanwhile, the actor released the image of a handwritten note on social media, in which he stated that he would never abscond from the law, and had not been in town “for reasons related to work and due to my mental agony”. He asserted, “As a law abiding citizen, I shall face the charges against me.” 

The actor also said he couldn’t understand why the issue “got blown out of proportion without getting the facts straight and not knowing the real picture.”

Arun Vijay rose to fame when he co-starred with Thala Ajith Kumar in “Yennai Arindhaal”. He is currently awaiting the release of his maiden production venture “Kuttram 23”, in which he plays a policeman.
