Bug-Infested Witness Shuts Down Detroit Court Room

CBS Detroit, August 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.
