Wild Courtroom Drama

I went to the Cass County Courthouse today for what I thought would be a pretty typical arraignment. I was in the front row and watched as the defendant listened to the judge read the charges against him. But then two men walked past a bailiff and punched the defendant and then started kicking him. Five or six deputies rushed in and regained control of the courtroom. We didn't have approval for a camera in the courtroom, but our camera outside the courtroom caught much of the drama as it unfolded. Check out the story:

WOW Tess! Are you doing mostly court cases now?? I seem to remember another court case or something not too long ago. I couldn't watch the video because it brought back too much PTSD. I love that you are doing something that you love. What a crazy story. Thanks for telling it!
