Court was running normally Friday in the domestic violence session in an Ohio courtroom until a judge took a break and got off the bench. When the judge got off the bench he left Rashad Green and his ex-girlfriend together in the courtroom without any security. The ex-girlfriend was there to get a restraining order against Greene and had testified that she feared him.
Once the judge left the bench security film shows Greene run at the woman, shoving another out of his way and chasing the former girlfriend around the courtroom. Eventually the ex-girlfriend fell down and Greene then pushed her to the ground and began punching her. The attacked ended when the judge reentered the courtroom with his gun drawn. Evidently judge’s in Ohio carry guns. Greene now faces serious charges and the video tape is going to be extremely damming evidence. New security measures at the court are now being considered.
