Composer and singer Don Spike (45, Kim Min-soo) was revealed who was arrested on charges of drug use. In the past, he was tried three times for smoking marijuana, but managed to avoid prison sentences.
CBS Nocut News reported that Don Spike, who said he had “recently started taking drugs,” was sentenced to a total of two sentences in 2010 for violating the Narcotics Control Act (cannabis).
Between 2008 and 2009, Don Spike was found to have trafficked and smoked marijuana 20 times, and had a number of other criminal convictions.
First, he bought 5g of cannabis from a foreigner in Itaewon between October 2008 and August 2009, and also bought cannabis several times from a certain person the following year.
He then smoked marijuana in his music studio in Seocho-gu, Seoul and a nearby playground at dawn, and gave it to his acquaintance and smoked a total of 7 times together.
On April 30, 2010, he was sentenced to 10 months in prison and 2 years of probation for smoking marijuana. At the same time, a fine of 9,000 was imposed which was earned back about 80 hours of community service and the amount of smoking marijuana.

In October of the same year, he was sentenced to a year in prison and two years of probation on a separate drug charge. At this time, 120 hours of community service and a fine of 101,500 were also imposed.
