SEOUL - South Korea's ousted president Park Geun-hye spent her first day in custody on Friday after a court ordered her arrest.

The former head of state stared straight ahead, apparently trying to maintain her composure, as she was driven to the Seoul Detention Center through a barrage of camera flashes shortly before dawn.

After a marathon hearing on Thursday, a court in the capital ordered Park's arrest in connection with the corruption scandal that brought millions of people onto the streets and saw her impeached.
