HLTV.org understands that TCM-Gaming member Baljit "zE-" Lal was yesterday assaulted by Ukrainian police outside a club.
The Danish player was asked to show his passport after leaving a club in Kiev and then taken to a police station, located right next to the club, as he did not have the document with him.
The police then asked for money to let Lal go, but upon learning he did not have any with him, they punched the player twice, releasing him about 30 minutes later.
mousesports star Roman "roman" Ausserdorfer was also questioned by the police after leaving the same club, but avoided further trouble as he paid the men.
"Because my passport was at the hotel, I had to pay the police ("money under the table") if I did not want to be placed in a small "prison room" overnight," he said on his Facebook wall.
"They did not accept driver's licence or any other personal documents."
