4 Feb staff patrol found on the street a drunken man that “offended human dignity and public morality”. The police wanted to accompany him to the police station for drawing up an administrative report, but the offender began to resist. He hit one of the guards punched in the face and tore his uniform.
The man was found guilty of committing a crime under article “Application of violence not dangerous for health against a representative of authority in connection with the performance of their official duties”.
