MOSCOW, May 11, /ITAR-TASS/. Reports that the police have detained a fan of the Zenit St. Petersburg football club who hit Dynamo defender Vladimir Granat at a match of the 29th round of the Russian Premier League championship between Zenit St. Petersburg and Dynamo Moscow in St. Petersburg are not true, security director of the Russian Premier League Alexander Meitlin told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“This information is not quite true,” he said. “We have identified this man but he has not yet been detained. We have all information about him. It has been referred to law enforcement agencies and there is no doubt this man will be detained and brought to liability. He may face a criminal case of charges of hooligamism.”
Earlier on Sunday, a spokesman for the St. Petersburg police department told Itar-Tass that a criminal case had been opened on charges of battery driven by motives of hooliganism against the football fan who hit the Dynamo player.
At the end of the match with a 4-2 score in favour of Dynamo, hundreds of Zenit fans ran to Dynamo goalkeeper Vladimir Gabulov’s net. Several seconds later some of fans broke onto the pitch, after that referee from Rostov-on-Don Sergey Ivanov decided to send the teams to the changing rooms. A fan running on the pitch slapped twice Dynamo defender Vladimir Granat on the face. The match was interrupted.
