Kadlec faces charges of driving while drunk and smashing the vehicles parked on a street in Prague after the man was arrested as he tried to drive away, CTK news agency said. No injuries were reported.

The New Zealand Herald reported Kadlec had been suspended a year ago because he crashed into another car while drunk and was on leave pending a final court ruling.

Kadlec regrets the crime, drunk driving, but argues that he is “not a scoundrel” as he voluntarily surrendered to police. There was a weapon found in his Jeep and reports by Lidovky details, referring to the man as Charles Kadlec. They added that the police are reviewing the street cameras and may release footage at a later date.

“Individual acts of criminal proceedings or actions taken during screening is not possible to publish,” said spokeswoman Radka Šándorova, in their coverage. Basically, the authorities are being cautious, saying too much to the press.

“Weapons were taken in accordance with the internal regulations of the Czech police,” he asked Francis Nail, Vice-Rector for International Affairs and External Relations.

“I did not do it intentionally,” said Kadlec after the arrest. “You know, I really am not a villain… I’ve had 20 years of honest services,” he added. “I will do everything I can to pay the resulting damage,” Kadlec said while he also apologized to all victims and the entire police force.
