A high-profile financial analyst who regularly appears on TV as an expert in the field has been named as the man involved in a serious road-rage incident in Auckland.
Guy Hallwright, who has made regular TV appearances as a financial expert, was involved in an incident that left another motorist with two broken legs and a shattered ankle.
Hallwright has been charged with reckless disregard for the safety of another, causing grievous bodily harm.
The Forsyth Barr analyst, who resides in a $2.4m Parnell home, has lost a three-month fight to keep his name supressed.
Hallwright says that he intends to clear his name and that “there is more to this case than meets the eye.”
It is understood that following a verbal altercation between Hallwright and the other motorist, Sung Jin Kim, Hallwright attempted to drive away while Kim was standing in front of his car.
The right tyre of Hallwright’s car is believed to have driven over Kim’s legs.
