According to local police, two cops were patrolling the streets of the village Tsagan Aman in a patrol vehicle. At 4am they spotted a local man behaving defiantly and asked for identification documents. Once the cops put the 36-year-old man in the vehicle, the drunk demanded they should drive him home immediately. He showed them a hand grenade to make his point.
