MOSCOW, November 15 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow's Tverskoi district court arrested Seimur Nabizade, suspected of firing shots from a newlyweds motorcade in western Moscow, spokeswoman for the court Alexandra Berezina told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The incident was reported at around 16:00, Moscow time, on Monday. The report said shots had been fired from a car passing House 50 in Akademik Anokhin Street. A check ascertained that at least four shots had been fired, as police had found four shell casingss at the scene.
The motorcade ignored the demand by road police to stop. It was finally blocked on the Vorobyovskoye highway. Nine persons were detained, including the man who had fired shots. Criminal proceedings against him were opened under Article 213 of Russia's penal code /"hooliganism"/.
Protocols of administrative offense were drawn against eight other persons over "not stopping on demand." Police later released all the drivers of the motorcade.
"On Thursday, Moscow's Tverskoi court arrested Seimur Nabizade. He will remain in custody until December 13," Berezina said.
