Guma Aguiar, the Brazilian-born millionaire who recently purchased the Betar Jerusalem soccer team, said he had hired top legal expert (and Jpost.com blogger) Alan Dershowitz to defend him in a US case where he claims that police officers assaulted him. Aguiar was arrested after allegedly driving recklessly. The American Fox News network reported that he confessed to the officers that arrested him to having smoked a marijuana cigarette. He claimed that the police would not let him talk to either his mother or his attorneys.
