Local 4 Detroit reports that Randall Margraves, the father of three of Larry Nassar's victims, charged at the prolific child abuser in court today, shouting "let me at that son of a bitch" as bailiffs struggled to restrain him.
Here's footage that captures a more illustrative angle:

Before running at Nassar, Randall Margraves called Nassar a "son of a b****," and the judge told him not to swear in court. Margraves also said he would like to be locked in a room with Nassar. "I ask you to, as part of the sentencing, to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon," he said. "Would you do that?
Nassar, who was not touched in today's incident, sexually abused hundreds of girls and women in his care. He was sentenced to between 40 and 170 years in jail last week on seven counts, following a 60-year conviction on child pornography charges, but still faces sentencing on more charges of criminal sexual misconduct.
