Hasbulla issues apology after being 'arrested' by Russian police

Hasbulla issues apology after being 'arrested' by Russian police

Hasbulla and some friends were caught acting stupidly with some cars celebrating a wedding

Hasbulla has apologised after he and some friends were allegedly detained by police for driving offences.

You remember Hasbulla Magomedov, right?

He’s a social media star involved in the MMA world - despite never actually fighting anyone in the octagon - who has a form of dwarfism that gives him his unique appearance.

For whatever reason, he’s incredibly popular, having risen from relative obscurity in the Russian republic of Dagestan to global celebrity.

The 20-year-old has met all sorts of people, from Mike Tyson to Drake and Shaquille O’Neal, and has made a living off promotional work for the UFC, as well as high-profile public appearances.

However, he was reportedly arrested after he and some mates drove into a street and started making life difficult for other drivers while celebrating a wedding.

Local reports claimed that the gang had been taken into custody for their actions, and a video posted by the Internal Affairs Ministry of Dagestan showed a number of cars - one carrying the social media personality - doing doughnuts in the street and blocking off the road.

Then, the footage showed one of those cars bearing a huge scratch on the side, before showing a group of men, with Hasbulla at the front, standing in a line-up, with many of them looking like they’d suddenly realised the severity of their actions.

After the news broke, Hasbulla released a statement on Instagram in which he said: "We decided to hype a little bit.

"That won't happen again, people we apologise.

“We had to answer for it a little bit.

"I wasn't driving either."

On their Telegram channel, the Dagestani authorities released a statement of their own.

It read: "Unbridled wedding fun in Dagestan is known to many and far beyond the borders of the republic.

"In the absence of other ways of entertainment, such a primitive option is still extremely popular - blocking roads for other road users, burning rubber, smashing cars against each other and many other features that, in fact, have nothing to do with the celebration.

"All participants of 'wedding emotions', as they themselves call it, were taken to the police, and in relation to them, employees of the State Traffic Inspectorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Dagestan drew up administrative protocols for all violations."

The group of men - including Hasbulla - were reportedly arrested.

Hasbulla is well acquainted with the high-life these days, with his Instagram featuring loads of pictures showing him in designer gear, wearing expensive jewellery, and with high performance cars.

According to reports, Hasbulla stands at just three feet and four inches tall, with his small stature the result of an unspecified genetic disorder that he was born with.

He’s also courted controversy though, as well.

Footage emerged showing him allegedly beating up his cat, striking it and pulling on its ear.

However, he said that he was just disciplining the cat as it had been misbehaving.
