A university employee drank whiskey and smoked marijuana before attempting to drive his car into the administration center of Taipei National University of the Arts, yesterday, September 9.
According to the police investigation, the 57-year-old man, named Lee, worked as a housekeeper and administrator at a university dormitory.
Lee became disgruntled after he was called in for an interview during which his work performance was criticized. In response, Lee, who is said to come from a well-off family, drove his NT$2 million Mercedes Benz Coupe to a motel where he imbibed in whiskey and marijuana cigarettes before driving back to the university and attempting to drive up the stairs of the administration center building at around 4:30 pm.

Police arrived a short time later, and arrested the shirtless Mr Lee after he tested positive for alcohol, and a quantity of marijuana was found among his belongings.
