Corey Webb: Pees in Courtroom During Trial Break

Signs your trial is not going well: When the judge says to you, "I don't know how you were raised, but peeing in a trash can in a state district courtroom is inappropriate behavior."

That quote, which surely will go down in judicial history alongside "with all deliberate speed," was uttered by District Judge Kerry Russell in a Tyler courtroom yesterday to 17-year-old Corey Webb, who just had to go, you know?

Webb was on trial for shooting at a peace officer during an escape attempt from a juvenile facility. He'd already shown a somewhat casual attitude to the judicial process, being reprimanded for mumbling loudly during attorneys' arguments and asking the judge if he could fire his lawyer.

And then, according to KYTX:

After her testimony, the court broke for lunch. Right as the jury was ushered out Webb unbuckled his pants, walked over to a trash can and urinated in court. The judge had this to say to Webb:

"I don't know how you were raised, but peeing in a trash can in a state district courtroom is inappropriate behavior. This is the second conversation we've had. There won't be a third."

After the break, Webb entered a guilty pee plea on the original charge.
