MOSCOW, August 22. /TASS/. A court in Moscow has ordered a week-long administrative arrest for a sixty-year-old driver for ignoring traffic police orders and an attempt to escape from patrol cars, the court’s press-service has said.
The man, Boris Pinyagin, was found guilty of disobedience to legitimate orders of police officers and sent to jail for seven days.
The incident occurred in the evening of Sunday, 21, at about 18:00 Moscow time. Traffic police patrols were instructed to chase a Saab car whose driver in an earlier incident ignored police orders to stop in a northern neighborhood.
Several police crews joined the chase and repeatedly urged him via loudspeakers to stop. The defiant motorist preferred to ignore all instructions and sped on. While doing so he repeatedly violated traffic rules. In a situation where there was no risk of hitting other cars or passers-by a police officer first fired warning shots in the air and then at the back wheels of the car being chased. The trouble maker had to stop, the court’s press-service said.
In court Pinyagin pled guilty and repented. He explained that just recently he had been robbed and remained in a somewhat deranged state of mind since.
