Tel Aviv nightclub incident

On January 5, 2008, Bynum was suspected of hitting a 22-year-old man with his car outside a Tel Aviv nightclub when fleeing the scene. The man was taken to hospital with moderate injuries. Bynum was later questioned and taken into custody by police.[2] The prosecution alleged that Bynum, who was out celebrating his 25th birthday, hit the man with his vehicle after a brawl in which his brother was stabbed, and other players were attacked as well. The prosecution also claimed he would try to flee the country if released. As a result, a judge has extended his remand. He was later released to house arrest.[3] Tel-Aviv was founded on empty dunes north of the existing city of Jaffa. ...

Bynum's case was later closed with no charges. The Tel Aviv district attorney announced that all charges were dropped, after several months of investigation. In an official statement made by the district attorney it was said: 'It was found that Bynum was in a tangible danger, and under these circumstances had, in order to save himself, escape in his car immediately, while driving his car. Therefore the advocacy decided the accident took place in circumstances that forced Bynum to protect himself, and as a result he's exempt of criminal responsibility.'[4]
