Drunk man abuses president

A 32-year old resident of Lublin, south east Poland, has been detained by police allegedly insulting President Lech Kaczynski.

On Sunday, police in Lublin took Przemyslaw D. into custody after he started hurling abuse at Lech Kaczynski on Litweski Square, where the president was meeting local residents.

The man is said to have been under the influence of alcohol when the incident happened.
Przemyslaw D. has pleaded not-guilty; although the accused did admit to using foul language, he did not intend to defame Mr. Kaczynski.

If found guilty, the man may be sentenced to three years in prison.
