Arkansas Man Drops Pants In Courtroom And Yells ‘Court Is Back In Session!’
He was thankfully detained before he started pounding his gavel.
According to The Smoking Gun, an 18-year-old Arkansas man who was already facing a charge of indecent exposure was slapped with a lot more than that after he dropped his drawers and burst into a courtroom yelling, “Court is back in session!”
Police said Derrick Thomas had been in custody since he was arrested last month for lying naked on a Jonesboro sidewalk. He was set to appear in District Court last Wednesday to face his indecent exposure charge when he broke away from an officer, dropped his pants to his ankles, ripped off his shirt and ran into the courtroom.
Judge Keith Blackman was none too pleased with what went down in his courtroom, especially the fact that he had to stop court because “everyone was looking at” Thomas, so he threw “new charges for indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental operations” onto Thomas’s heap of troubles.
The officer who took Thomas back to his jail cell noted Thomas laughed and told another inmate, “I told you I would do it,” which sounds about right at this point.
