Internet star and UFC fighter Hasbulla Magomedov has reportedly been arrested in Russia following celebrating his friend’s wedding.
20-year-old Hasbulla has reportedly been arrested in his hometown of Dagestan in Russia after being caught in a traffic disorder.
He had been celebrating a friend’s wedding, when the celebrations reportedly went a bit too far, and resulting in authorities attending the scene.
Why was Hasbulla arrested?
According to reports, Hasbulla and friends blocked a main road in order to do donuts.
Dagestan’s Internal Affairs Ministry shared footage following the arrest on their Telegram channel.
It wrote: “Unbridled wedding fun in Dagestan is known to many and far beyond the borders of the republic.
“In the absence of other ways of entertainment, such a primitive option is still extremely popular – blocking roads for other road users, burning rubber, smashing cars against each other and many other features that, in fact, have nothing to do with the celebration.
“All participants of ‘wedding emotions’, as they themselves call it, were taken to the police, and in relation to them, employees of the State Traffic Inspectorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Dagestan drew up administrative protocols for all violations.”
Since his arrest, Hasbulla apologized for the incident on social media and confirmed it wasn’t him driving.
