Bug-infested man shuts down Detroit courtroom

“I looked, and there was a pale green horse. Its rider was named Death, and Hades accompanied him. They were given authority over a quarter of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, and plague, and by means of the beasts of the earth.” – Revelation 6:8

l to r: Bedbug, cockroach, flea

CBS Detroit reports, Aug. 23, 2012:

A court room in Detroit’s 36th District Court is closed after officials say a bug-infested man showed up for proceedings.

Judge Cylenthia Miller chose to evacuate the court and send her staff home after a bailiff spotted the man with insects crawling on him.

His daughter told the Detroit News he has a bedbug problem at his home, but a court staffer talking to WWJ Newsradio 950 said it’s not yet clear what kind of bugs were on the man — indicating that they also could have been cockroaches or fleas.

The man was reportedly there to serve as a witness in a case.

A pest control company has been called in to spray.  It was unclear when Judge Miller’s court room would reopen.

  1. Oh my gosh!!!! That makes my skin crawl just thinking about it. The bed-bug man ought to be forced to pay for the time and spraying of the court room. I can’t imagine someone going as a wittness with such dreadful circumstances. As a matter of fact, I cannot imagine anyone with bugs crawling on them in any circumstance.

    • I used to have witnesses testify before me who literally were stinking, with sores, scabs – bloody, all over their arms and face. Many of them were meth adicts with blackened teeth, extremely nervous and agitated people.
