Security guards of the Interior Minister dragged the driver from the car to the traffic area in the center of Makhachkala and beat him in full view of other travelers, afterwards they took him to the detention center.

The SUV was running a red light. The violator was given signals by emergency light, beam, but no reaction followed. Also, it was not in the driver's favor that the windows in the car were tinted, and this made it difficult for the guards to understand who was in the car. After the police showed the violator their certificates, the man did not react again. Therefore, it was decided to stop him at any cost, the head of the press service of the MIA explained.
The road incident, depicted on video, caused a stir. The situation is also being monitored by the Interim Head of Dagestan, Vladimir Vasilyev.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
