Drunk US Lawyer Barred from Russian Flight

A Belarusian-born lawyer from the United States has been barred from a flight in Russia’s Urals for “having an untidy look and being drunk,” regional transport police said on Tuesday. The 44-year-old US passport holder tried to take a Moscow-bound flight in the Urals city of Perm on Sunday, but the airline refused to let him on board. The man, who came to Perm to meet a client, was taken to the airport’s transport police station instead. The lawyer, whose identity was withheld, now faces a fine of 100-500 rubles ($3-$15) or up to 15 days of administrative arrest.
