A car drove into a metal barricade outside Sam Bankman-Fried’s home in California, his lawyers said on Thursday, in a recent incident they said underscores the security risks faced by the FTX founder and those ensuring his return to court.
In a filing in Manhattan federal court, lawyers for the 30-year-old onetime billionaire said three men got out of the car and told a security officer guarding the Palo Alto home, “You won’t be able to keep us out.” The men, who have not been identified, then got back in the car and drove away.
The lawyers brought up the incident in response to a push by major media outlets, including Reuters, to make public the names of two people who helped guarantee Bankman-Fried’s bond alongside his parents, both Stanford Law School professors who put up their house as collateral for the $250 million bond.
