Local actor Shane Pow was hospitalised after he was assaulted during a dispute with a patron at the Marquee Singapore nightclub early on Saturday (April 13) morning.
According to a Channel 8 News report, the 28-year-old, who was with his girlfriend, 987 deejay Kimberly Wang, and a few friends when the incident occurred, bumped into a patron, accidentally spilling his drink on the other party’s shoes.
Even though he apologised, Shane was assaulted and had to be taken to hospital for treatment. The extent of his injuries is unclear.
The police said they were alerted to a case of rash act causing hurt at 2.08am on Saturday at Marina Bay Sands. Investigations are ongoing.
A Mediacorp spokesperson told TODAY that Shane was taken to the Singapore General Hospital and was later transferred to another hospital.
Though he is expected to be discharged today, Shane, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actor, will not be attending tonight’s Star Awards.
