A man leaped over the bench in a Las Vegas courtroom and attacked the judge at his sentencing hearing on Wednesday after she denied him probation, wild footage shows.
Deobra Redden, 30, a three-time felon, was being sentenced by Judge Mary Kay Holthus in Clark County District Court after he was convicted of attempted battery with substantial bodily harm, KLAS reported.
Around 11 a.m., Redden’s attorney asked Holthus to sentence his client to probation — but Holthus had something different in mind for the repeat offender.
“I think it’s time he got a taste of something else because I just can’t with that history,” she said. — NYPost
Thanks to the bailiff and the clerk, the judge, fortunately, was not seriously injured.
