State attorney’s office charges Janoušek with attempted murder

The Prague State Attorney’s Office has filed charges against lobbyist Roman Janoušek for his role in a hit-and-run last year in the Czech capital. In the incident, the suspect is alleged to have struck a fellow driver who had gotten out of her vehicle after he hit her car from behind. Under the influence of alcohol (later shown in a breathalyser test) he then sped from the scene. Mr Janoušek has been charged with attempted murder and endangering the public due to intoxication; if found guilty in the case Mr Janoušek could face up to 18 years in jail.
