A Ukrainian-born gymnast is accused of illegally transporting a small arsenal in the trunk of his black BMW in Manhattan. The court ordered him to undergo a psychiatric examination before transferring the criminal case to court, reports New York Daily News.

Police detained 44-year-old Yevgeny Buchkovsky from Houston after a passer-by saw a man insert a magazine into a Kalashnikov near a black luxury car and hid it in the trunk of a car parked at the Park Ave intersection. and East 54th Street in Midtown.

The detainee admitted that he has weapons that are legal in his home state, but not in New York. After receiving a search warrant, the police found two 12-gauge shotguns, loaded 30-round clips, and a knife.

The man, who did not give his name, but introduced himself as the brother of the gymnast, said that Buchkovsky had been hospitalized three times since February due to a mental disorder. “He doesn't understand what he's doing. When the brother takes the pills, everything is fine with him, but he just stops taking them, the brother told the Daily News newspaper earlier. “He hears voices.”

Despite urgent requests from his family to return home, Buchkovsky traveled to Washington and then to New York. “He changed cars three times,” his relatives said. “We knew he had a weapon and asked for it back.”

Police said there was no indication that Buczkowski planned to use the weapon in the city or had any harmful intentions.

Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Lauren Brotherton cited CCTV footage showing Buczkowski placing a gun in a car, as well as the fact that he lives in Texas, and requested that he remain in custody, which the judge did, setting bail of $100. 000 dollars in cash. Lawyer Arthur Mendola declined to comment.
