In Latvia, a candidate for the upcoming parliamentary elections was arrested during a TV debate. Dainis Grabovskis of the small party 'Tautas Kontrole' was not invited to the debate, but sat among the spectators and commented loudly. During the advertising break officials asked him to leave. Mr. Dainis Grabovskis did not intend to go and ran on stage instead which resulted in a chase and struggle with the police-officers. The audience applauded when mr. Grabovskis was arrested and removed. Mr. Grabovskis is charged with vandalism: he can be fined 250 lats (350 euro/$500) and a maximum of 15 days imprisonment.
