Mikhail Efremov sat behind the wheel drunk to bail out friend. In an interview with “Interlocutor” has told his lawyer Elman Pashayev.
According to the advocate, the actor drank in honor of the Orthodox feast, and on the same day “him from the Ukraine called a friend, a famous person, who said that his mother and wife went to the hospital and are in serious condition”. The artist allegedly asked to go to the hospital and help as much as possible, because the friend could not come because of closed borders.
“Michael drank, but sat behind the wheel to help out a friend. I assure you, this is a very conscientious person, he’s not going to get out somehow, to do something to avoid punishment,” says Pashayev.
20 Jun Ephraim was found sane. The actor was examined by a psychologist, a psychiatrist and a neurologist. He politely answered all the questions of specialists. In particular, the actor said that he was depressed, had drug and alcohol addiction, and also told about the regular booze.
