Virgie's "Texas" Lawyer Collapses in Court

2/22/2007 3:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Virgie Arthur's lawyer, John "Texas" O'Quinn, collapsed in court just moments ago, apparently suffering from diabetic shock, and causing a gigantic commotion in court.

It was unclear what the status of his health was, but a witness provided a Luna bar for relief, as the judge clamored for orange juice.

O'Quinn, a colorful Texas figure, is a car collector who owns the Batmobile from "Batman Forever," and Pope John Paul II's Ford Escort.

He fainted for me. This Judge isn't as stupid as people are saying...although he is rather long winded. He's avoiding a lot of legal booby traps that some of the various attorney's are trying to lay down for him. I think he wants his decision to stand, and does not want this case to have anything to merit an appeal. Can you imagine being in court with that many attorneys!!??? If this was just btw two states it would be so much easier, but Stern and Smith moved to the Bahamas to relieve themselves of just this sort of thing...not expecting Smith to die.

Tee hee all of ya'll are funny. Having snacks in the courtroom is a no-no, diabetic or not. That was pretty shocking though. Sort of ironic that somebody collapses in THIS trial!

This courtroom really needed some more drama!

Love the way paternity keeps creeping up in here - smart lawyer.

Actually, all of the lawyers are pretty sharp, as is the judge. He is firm in his decisions and gets things back on track. The comic relief is good to make everyone relax a little now and then.

I wouldn't want to have to make this decision.

I already can't stand this lawyer and now....

he keeps acting as if they should all sit down like a happy family and work things out.

Trying to force Larry Birkhead to say nice things about HKS? The judge must be deaf and stupid. It's obvious that HKS was an enabler, and even said it himself, and that ANS and HKS fled to avoid Larry Birkhead. Now he tries to force Larry Birkhead to sweet talk about HKS?

Maybe Howie was born a woman, Howardina K. Stern and that's why he (she) can't be the baby's father?

Anything is possible in this three-ring circus.
