Drunken Deputy beats up traffic policeman in Volgograd region
Initially, the Deputy was trying to escape from the police, but then attacked one of the officers.
Traffic police officers detained Aleksandr Bolenkov, the Deputy of the Frunzenskoye Village Duma of the Sredneahtubinsky municipal district, the Deputy Chairman of the regional Duma of the Volgograd region, on suspicion of assaulting a police officer. According to the Volgograd Investigative Committee, a criminal case has been initiated against the Deputy under part 1 of Art. 318 of the Criminal Code (Use of Violence Against a Representative of the Power).
The day before, traffic police officers pulled over a car with a driver who was showing signs of intoxication. A local MP Bolenko turned out to be the driver. In response to the demands of the police to perform field sobriety tests, the MP initially was trying to get away, but was stopped after a chase. After that, the Deputy delivered a few punches and kicks to one of the officers who was eventually hospitalized, while the Deputy kept resisting the demands until finally he got handcuffed.
At the moment, the verdict is being considered.
As said by local media, earlier, the Head of Kirov District Administration in Volgograd Aleksandr Nevstruev had been arrested for similar reasons. On October 22 he was pulled over on the road on suspicion of drunk driving. It turned out that the official had been deprived of his driving license for 6 months back in December 2015 with a fine of 30 thousand rubles. Even before that he had already been detained for drunk driving, however then Nevstruev had said he was unemployed.

Vladimir Putin ordered the Service to “ensure suspects, defendants, and convicts live in conditions compliant with the Russian law and international standards” during a formal event held in the Kremlin on May 31. The event was held to celebrate officers and prosecutors promoted to higher-ranking positions and military ranks. Could it be that the Russian President paid this much attention to the Service due to a growing number of articles about bribery, murder, and scandals associated with the Service?
