Wu allegedly attacked a college student in a noodle diner in Taipei at 5 a.m. after getting into an argument with him, according to local media reports.
The student, a 23-year-old man surnamed Chen, was hit in the face and received four stitches in his lips, the reports said. The student said he will press charges against Wu for assault and intimidation.
Wu told later reporters that he just had been drinking elsewhere before getting into the fight, and said he was on the receiving end of some punches. Wu said he is willing to apologize for the misunderstanding, saying he mistook the student as a paparazzo, but also vowed to have his own injuries checked and to consider counter-suing.
Media said Wu went to a party with celebrities Elva Hsiao (蕭亞軒), Yang Chin-hua (楊謹華) and Kai Ko (柯震東), and that they all went to the diner afterward.
