Thursday, July 27, 2006

ST. LOUIS -- The man known affectionately as the "Mad Russian" won't be deported after all. The U.S. government has dropped a deportation case against Vladimir Noskov, 44, of the St. Louis suburb University City, who faced expulsion over a two-decade-old marijuana-related charged. Though originally from the Ukraine, Noskov is known as the "Mad Russian" in the University City Loop area, a name he adopted while spending years as a gonzo-style radio and public-access TV reporter.
