Grandson of Shaw cinemas founder gets 8 weeks’ jail and $10k fine for third time drink driving

When you’re a scion of one of Singapore’s wealthiest families, perhaps you’d think nothing about driving under the influence. For his third drink driving conviction, Howard Shaw of the prominent Shaw family was sentenced to eight weeks in prison and a $10,000 fine.The 46-year-old pleaded guilty to drunk driving in the wee hours of Jan 31 along Whitley Road with more than double the legal amount of alcohol in his blood, Channel NewsAsia reports. Along with the hefty fine and jail time, the grandson of Shaw cinemas founder, Runme Shaw, also received an eight-year ban from driving.The penalties aren’t new to the man, really. In 1997, he was slapped with a $3,000 fine and a two-year driving ban; while in 2006, Shaw was jailed for a week, fined $8,000, and disqualified from driving for four years.
