The LifeNews tabloid reported Sunday that police in the Moscow suburb of Domodedovo pulled over a U.S. Embassy employee apparently drunk behind the wheel of a BMW X5.
The report identified the man as an American citizen who works as an adviser to a U.S. defense attache. A police source was quoted as saying that the man strongly smelled of alcohol but declined to undergo a medical evaluation.
The source said the man initially did not stop his car and police had to pursue the vehicle. The U.S. Embassy declined to comment on the report when contacted on Sunday afternoon.
