Traffic police officers detained the Russian singer and TV host Mitya Fomin when he began to behave inadequately while driving a car with obvious signs of being intoxicated.
The incident occurred on Leningradsky Avenue in the fall, but it became known about him only now, when the court made a decision on the case.
The 42-year-old former Hi-Fi soloist was on his Mercedes and behaved suspiciously. He did not immediately obey the police officers, ignoring their demand to stop. The car of the singer had to be delayed with the chase.
Medical examination did not show the presence of alcohol in the blood. Then the police sent Fomin to the examination for drug intoxication. And the answer was positive, after which the materials were submitted to the court.
The police drew up a report on the artist under Article 12.8 of Part 1 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation on “Driving a vehicle while intoxicated”.
The judge of the world station in Moscow decided to leave the artist without the right to get behind the wheel for a period of one and a half years,and also to impose a fine in the amount of 30 thousand rubles. Fomin himself commented that he did not know anything about this situation and continues to drive.
