Flushing man threw remote, broke TV: DA

FLUSHING — A Flushing man allegedly broke a large, flat screen television at a neighborhood karaoke bar after chucking a remote control at the TV, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown’s office said.

An eyewitness told police Youngkuk Kim, 41, of 150-09 35th Ave. in Flushing, threw a remote control at a 42-inch television mounted on the wall at Sound Karaoke at 35-28 154th St. between 11:40 p.m. and 11:45 p.m. Jan. 17, according to the criminal complaint. The television shattered from the remote toss, the complaint said.

Kim was arraigned on a criminal mischief charge Jan. 18 before Queens Criminal Court Judge Gene Lopez, who released Kim on his own recognizance, a spokeswoman for Brown said. Kim’s next court date was scheduled for March 1.
