Pic shows: Vyacheslav Oliynyk fighting a cop. A former Olympic wrestling champ kept seven police officers at bay when they tried to arrest him after accusing him of drunk driving. Furious Vyacheslav Oliynyk - who won gold for Ukraine in 1996 - shrugged off pepper spray and police batons at the officers attempted to restrain him during the run-in in Kiev. And Oliynyk - who'd been celebrating his 50th birthday - showed he'd lost none of his skills since the USA's Atlanta Olympics. An extraordinary video of the catchweight bout - released by local traffic officials - shows the wrestler arguing with police over why his car was stopped. Suddenly he goes to shove one of the officers who fires a pepper spray into the former athlete's face. But instead of calming him, it just seems to make Oliynyk more angry and the officers weigh in with batons. Then - despite bleeding heavily from wounds to his head and face - the champ launches round two and comes at the officers again. It finally takes seven police officers to grapple Oliynyk - who these days seems to be a shade above his Olympic fighting weight of 90 kilos - to the ground. But even then, he keeps using his wrestling skills to prevent them from getting him in a leg lock or putting handcuffs on. Then when a female officer crouches down to talk to him and explain the arrest he replies: "Go f**k yourself." He only calms down when friends he was with tell him to go quietly for the sake of his young son who was crying in the car. Oliynyk later said he's expecting a rematch - this time in a court room. He told local newspaper Vesti: "I admit I was partially guilty, I can't tell you the whole thing. "I'm partly guilty because I did not stop and I was ignoring the police. "But I am not a criminal. As far as I can see there will be a court hearings and they will punish me somehow. "The police let me go home on the same day." (ends)

Ο Oliynyk, που είχε ανακηρυχθεί Ολυμπιονίκης στους αγώνες της Ατλάντα το 1996, έγινε έξαλλος όταν τον σταμάτησαν για έλεγχο αλκοτέστ.

Ο 50χρονος Ουκρανός νευρίασε και ξεκίνησε να φωνάζει στους αστυνομικούς, ένας εκ των οποίων τον ψέκασε με σπρέι πιπεριού, για να το ακινητοποιήσει, ωστόσο μάλλον κατάφερε το αντίθετο αποτέλεσμα, μιας και ο Ολυμπιονίκης τους επιτέθηκε, χτυπώντας όποιον έβγαινε μπροστά του.

Ένας αστυνομικός τον χτύπησε και με το γκλοπ του, με αποτέλεσμα να τρέχουν αίματα από το κεφάλι του, ωστόσο ούτε αυτή κίνηση ήταν αρκετή για να τον ακινητοποιήσει, καθώς συνέχισε, μέχρι να συγκεντρωθούν στο σημείο 7 αστυνομικοί, για να τον συλλάβουν.
