Bulgarian 'Ataka' Town Councilor Beats Security GuardsCrime | January 31, 2010, Sunday // 19:14| views
Yuriy Galev, a town councilor in Samokov, Southwestern Bulgaria, is wanted for beating two security guards in the top mountain resort Borovets.
Galev and a group of seven or eight friends of his beat two young men who refused to allow his son to ride a ski lift for free.
“I can by the ticket but I don’t want to,” the town councilor said upon which he and his friends attacked the two guards of the facility.
Galev is a town councilor from the nationalist party “Ataka.” Even though the police arrived on the spot together with other security guards, according to the victims, they did not arrest any of the perpetrators and let them go after talking to them. The entire incident is captured by CCTV cameras.
On Sunday, the Samokov police declared that Galev was wanted and were looking to arrest him.
Galev is known to have a criminal record. In a notable incident in 1995, he entered the lobby bar of the Rila Hotel in Borovets and started firing at will with an AK-47 Kalashnikov. Even though the police found 156 fired cartridges, he was acquitted because the gun was proven to be “not real.”
