Georgian Diplomats In Czech Fracas

A Czech tabloid, "Blesk," is reporting about an altercation that took place on Saturday (February 7) night in Prague.

According to the report, a group of Georgians with diplomatic passports had some sort of dispute with a taxi driver, who then "hid" in a local restaurant.

But the Georgians, according to the tabloid, managed to get inside -- before being arrested by police.

Two of the Georgians were handcuffed, but upon producing their diplomatic passports, the police had to let them go.
