Lawyer causes court evacuation after ‘abundance’ of bed bugs pours from his suit

A lawyer caused a courtroom to evacuate when he arrived with an ‘abundance’ of bed bugs falling off his suit.
The Rogers County Courthouse in Oklahoma shut down Monday after the third-floor courtroom became overrun with the blood-sucking insects.
‘Hard to imagine someone doesn’t know, you know, that some bed bugs are crawling all over them certainly in abundance,’ Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton told KJRH News.

According to Walton, another person who was in court first saw the bugs on the lawyer, who has remained unnamed.
‘A courthouse user noticed them and said she could visibly see something crawling on his neck which was later found to be bed bugs,’ he said.

‘He had also placed his jacket over some file folders and when his jacket was moved bed bugs were discovered there.’
The courthouse’s head of security, Mike Clarke said the lawyer was incredibly casual about the infestation of bugs living in his suit and did not even appear to notice.
‘I don’t even think he cared,’ Clark said.

The building was evacuated and pest control was called in to exterminate the bugs.
‘(We) cleared the courtroom but we also had inmates in the courtroom which caused concern. So, at that time we evacuated everyone from the courtroom,’ Clark said.

‘We are certainly not happy with someone coming in that condition to inconvenience everyone else in that building.’
The courthouse opened back up Tuesday morning after the building was treated for the contamination.
It has not been confirmed yet who the lawyer was, or if this was a genius, yet disgusting, stunt to get his case delayed.
