Maccabi Tel Aviv guard Will Bynum was arrested on Saturday after allegedly running over a man in the early hours of the morning. Judge Tzvika Kapach extended Bynum's arrest until 5 p.m. on Sunday, claiming that there's a reasonable doubt that Bynum could obstruct the police's investigation. Bynum allegedly ran over Ben Natan, 22, on Saturday morning after a brawl had erupted outside the 'G Spot' club in southern Tel Aviv. The prosecution claimed that Bynum, who was celebrating his 25th birthday, drove over Natan three times and that he might flee the country if released. Natan was taken to Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital after he was moderately injured. Bynum's teammate Vonteego Cumming's was also at the club and was questioned by police in relation to the incident. Bynum was represented in court by Maccabi Tel Aviv chairman Shimon Mizrahi, who claimed that there's no reason to extend the American's arrest. "All the windows in Will's car were smashed and so was the back window of Vonteego Cummings' car. Twenty people were waiting for Bynum when he left the club and one of them had a knife and tried to stab Will's brother," Mizrahi said in court.
