U.S. Defense Adviser Caught Drunk-Driving in Moscow Suburb – Report

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.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
