Investigative Committee studying scuffle between traffic police officers and federal judge in Stavropol
Earlier, a video appeared in social networks in which a man, who called himself a judge, argues with the inspectors that stopped his car.
The Investigative Directorate of the ICR for Stavropol Kray is checking the row between traffic police officers and a man that introduces himself as a federal judge, reports Komsomolskaya Pravda. A video with the skirmish earlier appeared on social networks.
The footage shows how a passenger of a BMW car stopped by inspectors pushes a police officer and behaves aggressively. After one of the police officers turns on the camera on his mobile phone, he stops rushing at the inspectors and states that one of them hit him and calls himself a judge. After that, he promises an inspector to contact the prosecutor's office. Komsomolskaya Pravda notes that the person in the video looks like a judge of Oktyabrsky District of Stavropol, Alexander Korobeynikov.
The ICR noted that the check into the incident began before the video went viral. The conflict occurred on the evening of March 7, 2019. The car, in which the alleged judge was, was stopped due to the thick tinting of the glass, prohibited by law.
The Prosecutor General's Office had earlier accused the Moscow region’s ex-official of exceeding official authority, taking a bribe on an especially large scale, and forgery, and demanded to seize assets worth of 9 billion rubles ($135 million) from him.
