Hasbulla arrest: 'Mini Khabib' issues an apology, claims he wasn't driving
Hasbulla was arrested along with his entourage for going overboard with a friend's wedding celebrations. A footage of their celebrations, resulting in damage to their vehicles has since gone viral on social media.
According to The Sun, Dagestan's Internal Affairs Ministry has since released a statement on Telegram sharing further details. The statement reads:
"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."
'Mini Khabib' has since issued an apology on social media while clarifying that he wasn't behind the wheels. The Dagestani star wrote on Instagram Stories:
"We decided to hype a little bit. That won't happen again, people we apologise. We had to answer for it a little bit. I wasn't driving either." translated by The Sun
