So this happened. A Brevard County, Fla. judge allegedly attacked and threatened a public defender during an argument in court on Monday. Judge John Murphy is accused of punching veteran public defender Andrew Weinstock after the two exchanged words — words that included “I’ll beat your ass,” and “You know, if I had a rock I would throw it at you right now.” Oh, there was also, “stop pissing me off. Just sit down,” before some punches were allegedly thrown. Watch it above and read about it here…[WFTV]
