The former olympic champ, Vyacheslav Oliynyk, may have gotten a gold medal in ’96 for his skills… but these days he is getting police batons and pepper spray for drunk driving.
How many Ukranian cops does it take to apprehend a 50-year-old former Olympic wrestling champ?
Seven, actually … plus a bunch of pepper spray and some batons.
The man who got his face cracked open is Vyacheslav Oliynyk — who won the gold medal at the ’96 Olympics in Atlanta.
Oliynyk was reportedly stopped for drunk driving after celebrating his 50th bday — but an argument broke out and the guy made it clear he wasn’t going to jail quietly.
