Saatchi Exec Describes Taking a Glass to the Face in Nightclub Fight

A Saatchi & Saatchi creative executive testified in court that he was beaten in the face with a glass at the Singapore nightclub Zouk.

Dwayne Koh Liang Hsien (right), a former creative department head at Saatchi in Singapore, now works in Shanghai, according to The Straits Times.

He testified at the trial of businessman Ng Peng Soon (left), who is accused of assualting Koh and breaking the nose of Howard Wee Inn Hwee, as they danced at the club around 3.50am on Sept 2, 2007. The S. Times said:

Ng is said to have grievously hurt Mr Koh by using a glass to hit him on the left side of his face, causing him multiple irregular facial cuts and permanent disfigurement.
The incident allegedly started in typical nightclub-fight fashion: Koh was standing on the balcony of the members area (of course! He's Saatchi, what were you expecting?) when he was shoved from behind. He turned around and recited to Ng the time-honored drunken nightclub incident mantra:
Relax ... I don't want any trouble.
Obviously, Ng then hit him on the left side of his face with a glass.
