Drunken Mazda driver was detained in Yekaterinburg after a shooting chase. This was reported by the head of the press service of the regional head office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Valery Gorelykh.
The incident took place on Aviation Street. There, law enforcement officers noticed a foreign car, which at great speed passed the intersection at a prohibitory traffic light. The violator ignored the lawful demand of the police to stop, after which the persecution began.
Law enforcement officers were forced to use service weapons. First, fire was opened into the sky, then – on the wheels of the scorcher’s car. Only then the motorist stopped, but made an attempt to escape and rushed into the thicket. After some time, experts managed to find it. A distinct smell of alcohol emanated from the man, but he refused a medical examination.
The attacker turned out to be a 33-year-old local resident, who had previously been brought to criminal and administrative responsibility. Protocols were drawn up against him.
