Khalil A. Bynum Was Arrested After Dragging Officer And Fleeing From Police To Attend His Trial For Grand Theft | June 13
Charlotte County: In a very Florida-esque move Khalil A. Bynum hit a deputy’s patrol car and was later found in court attending his own grand theft trial.
A Charlotte County deputy pulled over Khalil A. Bynum on U.S. 41 near Chamberlain Boulevard in the parking lot of a strip mall. Bynum got out of the car with a female passenger, but then both got back in against the deputy’s commands.
The man sped off but the deputy got trapped and dragged with the car. The car crashed into a support column of the strip mall, nearly hitting nearby people.
He then slammed into the deputy’s patrol car, and the deputy managed to free himself from the man’s car. The suspected fugitive was found in an unlikely place — the courtroom.
He had driven to the Charlotte County courthouse to attend his own grand theft jury trial. The trial judge allowed the proceedings to continue and Bynum was found guilty on those charges.
Bynum was then taken to the Charlotte County jail on new charges of aggravated battery on a law enforcement office and three counts of leaving the scene of a crash with property damage.
