On June 21, 2019, 33-year old Dorleans Philidor who was on trial for a burglary charge, defecated on his seat while in the courtroom and tried to throw his feces at the judge. Thankfully, it did not reach the judge.
Dorleans Philidor was reportedly sitting in a wheelchair beside Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Lisa Walsh when he tried to throw his faeces at her but missed after she managed to scramble away.
“It’s protein! It’s good for you!” Philidor reportedly said afterwards. He ate some of his feces, witnesses said.
Many corrections officers responded to the incident as the lawyers tried to run, causing commotion inside the courtroom. There were no jurors at the trial at that time, officials said.
His trial was later moved so that the courtroom could be sanitized. Eventually he was acquitted of burglary after jurors’ deliberation on the afternoon of that same day. But he will stay in jail as he still faces another trial in a grand theft auto case.
Apparently, this is not the first time Philidor did the same stunt. Miami Dade Circuit Court spokeswoman Eunice Sigler said Philidor also defecated on himself in a holding cell the day before the trial. He smeared it to himself and the cell.
The court ordered for Dorleans Philidor to be checked by a doctor to determine if he was pretending to have a mental illness, but he was deemed well enough to undergo trial.
However, it is not yet clear if he will face charges related to the courtroom attack. He faces multiple other charges with at least 15 years sentence in prison if convicted.
