A Beijing taxi company claimed it had evidence proving TV star Zhou Jie was drunk when he smashed his Mercedes Benz into a taxi.
The United Crescent Taxi Company lawyer, who only revealed his surname as Li, said yesterday that enough evidence had been gathered to prove Zhou was drunk at the time of the accident.
Li said the evidence will be revealed as long as Zhou appears in court.
"We would like to see him in person and ask several questions to him face-to-face, and then you will know who is right," Li told METRO.
The lawyers of the two sides met in Chaoyang district court on Wednesday, but Zhou, 39, who is suing the taxi company for damages, did not appear.
The accident occurred in the capital's Chaoyang district on early morning of June 2 when Zhou's $100,000 (682,000 yuan) Mercedes Benz R300, bearing no license plates, smashed into a United Crescent taxi.
The cab flipped on its side and the taxi driver and two passengers were injured.
Zhou left the scene and allegedly said he felt sick and went to the hospital.
