Duct Tape Saves the Day Again!

duct.jpgJudges may want to consider keeping a roll of duct tape sitting next to them on the bench at all times. That way, if they want to follow Idaho Judge Peter D. McDermott’s lead, they’ll be good to go.

McDermott recently got fed up with a defendant in his court room who was being disruptive, so he ordered the guy’s mouth to be sealed up with duct tape.

During Monday’s hearing, [Nicklas] Frasure interrupted the proceedings with repeated verbal outbursts and unusual behavior and ignored several orders from McDermott to restrain himself. After another series of outbursts, McDermott told bailiffs to silence Frasure.

The bailiffs then found a roll of duct tape, tore off a piece and put it over Frasure’s mouth, according to the Idaho State Journal.

When asked for a comment about Judge McDermott after the hearing, Fraser was reported to say, “phee’s a mmmphfer-fffcker.”
