Florida judge allegedly punches public defender

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Judge John Murphy. Do you want to fuck with Judge John Murphy? Public defender Andrew Weinstock did, and look what happened to him.

MURPHY: If I had a rock, I would throw it at you right now. Stop pissing me off! Just sit down! I’ll take care of it. I don’t need your help. Sit! Down!

WEINSTOCK I’m the public defender, I have the right to be here and I have a right to stand and represent my clients.

MURPHY: Sit down. If you want to fight, let’s go out back and I’ll just beat your ass.

WEINSTOCK: Let’s go right now.

They go outside

MURPHY: (shrieking) YOU WANNA FUCK WITH ME? DO YA?

Incomprehensible yelling

I know it's beyond cliché at this point, but ... Florida.
