Policemen face disciplinary charges over handling lobbyist car crash

Six police officers are facing disciplinary charges over the way they handled the car crash of lobbyist Roman Janoušek earlier this month. Mr Janoušek crashed into another car and then ran over its driver and fled the site before he was arrested. However, the officers allowed Mr Janoušek to make phone calls, he was interrogated while still under the influence of alcohol, and was released just hours after the accident. The deputy chief of the Prague police force earlier resigned over the scandal.
