Son of notorious singer Talkov deprived of driving license for drunk ride
The musician pleaded guilty only in refusal of medical certification.
The Chertanovskiy court of Moscow fined Igor Talkov Jr., the son of a famous Soviet singer, 200 thousand rubles and deprived of a driver's license for two years as he was driving while drunk (Article 264.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), RIA Novosti reports. The MirImiR musician pleaded guilty of medical certification refusal and declared that he had not been drinking for about five years.
On November 28, 2018, a DPS inspector stopped the Jeep Grand Cherokee, whose driver was Talkov Jr. The policeman found the driver drunk, but he refused to undergo the test. In the summer of 2016, he was already deprived of his driving license for a drunken ride.
Talkov Jr. is the son of Igor Talkov killed in 1991. The investigation was never completed, and the ICR renewed it in November 2018. The investigators accused concert director of the singer Valery Shlyafman, who has been put on the wanted list for more than 20 years, for being careless.
