MOSCOW, January 28. /ITAR-TASS/. A Moscow police investigation department has endorsed a bill of indictment against professional mixed martial arts fighter Alexander Yemelyanenko who was accused of beating up a pensioner in a Moscow cafe.
Press service chief of the Moscow head Interior Department Andrei Galiakberov said that after the defendant got a copy of the bill of indictment a criminal case against him would be sent to court.
The incident occurred in the cafe in Vostochnaya street on October 23, 2013. Several men got involved in a drunken brawl, including the pensioner who was hospitalized. The victim - a 63-year-old man, was celebrating his birthday at the cafe when the clashes began.
Yemelyanenko left the cafe, but in a short while police found him and brought him to a police station. The professional martial arts fighter told police that he was the victim beaten up by an unknown man in the cafe.
Earlier, the 63-year-old pensioner had asked the investigation to drop a criminal case against Yemelyanenko because of their “reconciliation”. The victim had also officially declared that he had no claims to the sportsman.
Alexander Yemelyanenko, 32, has 30 fights in his professional record, including 23 victories and seven lost fights. He had last been on the ring in St. Petersburg on January 25 when he lost to Dmitry Sosnovsky from Ukraine in a technical knockout in the first round.
