Judge Recognizes Burglary Suspect as Middle School Friend [VIDEO]
You thought your class reunion was awkward? While you were drinking a little too much punch and reminiscing about the girl that turned you down, this super awkward reunion happened in a Miami court room.
During a hearing on Thursday, Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Mindy Glazer asked a question you don't normally hear from the bench, "Did you go to Nautilus for middle school?"
The 49 year old defendant, Arthur Booth, was on trial for suspected burglary. According to WSVN, on June 29, Booth was allegedly seen leaving the scene of a burglary. Police said Booth failed to pull over as they tried to conduct a traffic stop.
The judge pointed out how she had known booth in middle school and how disappointed she was to see him go from being the "nicest kid." Unfortunately, their past friendship wasn't enough to sway her mind from the law.
Glazer said, ""What's sad is how old we've become. Good luck to you, sir. I hope you're able to come out of this OK and just lead a lawful life" before setting Booth's bond at $43,000.
