A judge in a Michigan court got so angry at a defendant that he decided to take off his robe and confront the defendant himself.
“Tase his a** right now,” Jackson County Circuit Judge John McBain said in the video, which was first obtained by MLive.
The case regarded a personal protection order violation in which the defendant, Jacob Larson, was charged with stalking a high school classmate.
“He’s not leaving me alone,” the victim told the judge in the video.
“She’s instigating it,” Larson told McBain. Larson stated that the victim posted pictures of herself wearing makeup to social media, trying to shift the blame on the victim in a most twisted way.
“I want her to tell me to leave her alone,” Larson said.
“You know what? I told you to leave her alone and apparently that didn’t come through loud and clear,” McBain answered.
“You’ve got a bad attitude … you even referenced discussions about my own daughter,” the judge continued, this time visibly upset.
McBain then sentenced Larson to 45 days to county jail.
“Holy s***,” Larson said.
McBain then raised the sentence to 93 days, and warned Larson not to speak again.
“Over Facebook?” Larson asked.
“Over violations of my PPO and your conduct in the courtroom,” McBain answered. “Cuff him.” But Larson continued to swear, and McBain continued to up the sentence, making it a full year.
When Larson refused to put his hands behind his back to be handcuffed, McBain lost his temper. The judge got up from his seat, removed his robe and demanded that the court officer use his taser.
When everyone had settled down, McBain ordered the sentence to be 93 days.
