Israeli holds elephant hostage in Thailand By: israelinsider staff Published: May 1, 2007 A hostage negotiation team was called in after an Israeli tourist kidnapped a baby elephant while being pursued by Thai police, Ynetnews reported Tuesday. According to the report, Yoram Ben-Hamo, an Israeli tourist, was suspected of driving drunk when he crashed into three vehicles on his way to Bangkok, injuring one. After fleeing the scene, Ben-Hamo reportedly acquired a knife and stole a baby elephant from a nearby neighborhood yard and held it hostage, threatening to hurt the elephant should police not leave him alone. Hostage negotiators were called in, and Ben-Hamo was captured while lighting a cigarette given to him but the police. Ben-Hamo claimed he fled the car accident for fear of being arrested, and captured the elephant to avoid being so. Ben-Hamo was convicted of capturing, holding hostage and endangering an elephant, and received a fine of 500 baht ($15). The Thai media criticized the lenient punishment, the elephant being the national symbol of Thailand. http://web.israelinsider.com/Articles/Briefs/11286.htm saw this on the news here and it looks like the guy was a little bit more than drunk. probably on yaba(meth).

"Ben-Hamo was convicted of capturing, holding hostage and endangering an elephant, and received a fine of 500 baht ($15)." Resisting Arrest isn't a crime in Thailand?

endangering an elephant should carry a stiff sentence, especially in Thailand
