Chelyabinsk traffic police chase and detain drunken FSB officer without license
Late on July 6, traffic police officers chased a suspicious car in the Central District of Chelyabinsk until they detained the driver, who refused to obey their orders to stop and produce the documents.
According to Znak.com, a FSB employee named Kovalev was behind the wheel. The security officer was reportedly drunk and without a driver's license. Later it turned out that Kovalev had been deprived of his driver's license. The offender has been detained.
As the newspaper wrote, the incident had been reported to local FSB Chief Yuri Nikitin.
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
