Rapper Timati's guard prosecuted for driving on sidewalks at Sheremetyevo Airport
The rapper himself, who owns these Gelandewagens, did not come to the court.
Timati's guards, traveling on two black Mercedes-Benz Gelandewagen on sidewalks of Sheremetyevo Airport, were brought to justice. They were fined two thousand rubles ($34.5) for Violation of the rules for the location of the vehicle on the roadway (Article 12.15 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation). Another driver was additionally fined one thousand rubles ($17) for stopping at a pedestrian crossing.
The owner of two off-road vehicles, Timur Yunusov, better known as rapper Timati, did not appear in court. He is on vacation in the Crimea.
Note that the incident occurred in early August this year. Law enforcers were interested in the violation only after the video was published in a social network and mass-produced by the media. Employees of the Traffic Police could not determine who was behind the wheel of cars at the time of the violation for a long time. Representatives of Timati explained that six drivers have access to Gelandewagen. The Fifth Channel notes that after the law enforcers managed to identify the perpetrators, they tried to hide. Men, after the first call from the Khimki Department of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate, disconnected the phones. However, subsequently, law enforcers still managed to bring the guards of Timati to justice.
The Traffic Police officers sent orders to Sheremetyevo airport about the adoption of new security measures.
