Thanctuary!

The right place to go if you don't want to see a DUI ever again. Hell, the Aeroflot pilots are so drunk they explode breathalizers when they blow into them.

In Russia, breathalizers blow you.

Speaking of Aeroflot, you know what site I miss from September 2001? AmIgoingdown.com.

It was great. You could enter the airline, flight, season, etc., and it would calculate your odds of crashing. You had abou a 1 in 10,000,000 chance flying from Montreal to Toronto on Air Canada, but things could get a little dicey flying Aeroflot to Siberia in the Winter. I don't remember the details but I think it was at least 1 in 1,500,000 and possibly 1 in 150,000. Yikes!

A Georgian man went to his embassy and claimed diplomatic immunity after killing a girl in a drunken wreck. His diplomatic immunity was revoked. (Wikipedia)

One less drunk on our roads? Works for me.

Enjoy the vodak, and don't come back.

He certainly sounds defective.

The man then surprised police by hopping the fence of the embassy -- one of the most secure embassy compounds in Washington.

It wasn't that secure if a drunk man can hop the fence and be in there. I used to live in the neighborhood in the 70's as a kid and remember when they built it. Back in the cold war it was kind of an imposing place. It's not on Embassy Row like the other embassies, it's in a residential neighborhood with middle class small houses, so kind of an odd location for an embassy.

I hope he doesn't come back some day and kill Kennedy.

Nice. The Russian Ambassador to Canada killed someone and severely injured another while he was driving so drunk that he could barely speak, and his diplomatic immunity was allowed to remain intact.

Not really all that secure if a drunk could hop the fence.

/surprised he wasn't shot.
 
2012-10-26 08:41:16 AM
I'm surprised the Russians didn't shoot him the moment they saw him. Would have been perfectly legal, and the FSB is not known for playing nicely with people who piss them off.

When the Secret Service arrived at the scene, they explained to Russian Security Forces the situation. It then took about 90 minutes of negotiating before they turned the man over to U.S. authorities.

I like how they had to negotiate for that long to have a drunken guy who had no idea what he was doing, turned over.

In the ghei-ist way possible. The original James Bond (not the wussy Roger Moore/Pierce Brosnan versions, but the actual book version) would kick his ass without even raising his pulse rate.

Likely took 90 minutes for the button-guardian (he who protects the button that raises the barrier, and lowers the barrier) to find the appropriate person to wake up to authorise handing the guy over, then for that person to sit and make sure it's OK, to wake-up their superior, and for their superior to swear for a few minutes as he was getting head from some really good hooker, and do you have any farking idea Viri how much these American girls cost? Then he has to make sure the embassy lawyer doesn't care, wait till the american moron drunk is given all of his relative rights etc. and have the chance to request asylum etc. then hand him over to the american police...

My Russian friends tell me that while Russia as a country generally tolerates drunkenness, their DUI busts make ours look like children's birthday parties.

By "Kick his ass" I assume you meant "order an elaborate breakfast/dinner," because that's the majority of what the actual book version of James Bond did.

Wow, that really says something about the state of our DUI laws, doesn't it.

I'm surprized that it happened that quickly. The Russian Embassy is Sovereign Russia. The guy breached their security perimiter and entered their "country" without an permission. That's kinda serious. Probably not the type of incident that gets resolves by Corpral Krapski. I'll bet the Ambassador got woken up to make the desision.
If the Cold War was still on he might find himself in Siberia or dead.

I remember that case it caused a big stink around here. I thought that was a decent thing to do to revoke his immunity.

I have it on good authority that in Russia they give you the Order of Lenin for public drunkenness.

/Catch: if your eyes aren't pointing in three different directions, you're not drunk yet.

As of recently, Russia has a zero tolerance drunk driving law which, shockingly, is actually enforced.

Hope for his sake that this guy learned his lesson. If you think US prisons are bad, you don't know what a Russian prison is.

hmm. I came here to say he knew exactly what he was doing. Everyone (should) know making a run for Mexico wont save you, but every DC resident should know that hopping an embassy wall might..

Yeah, it's enforced because fines are paid on the spot. And that makes it easy to pocket the money or take a bribe.
