Badass Judge Tackles Suspect -- In Court!!!

3/24/2009 7:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Some dude broke the law -- so the judge broke the dude.

Play video

It all went down in a Broward County, Florida courtroom just a short time ago -- some dumbass criminal accused of domestic violence went berserk and tried to attack his alleged victim.

That's when Judge Ian Richards leapt off his bench and helped subdue the scumbag.

The dirtball now faces some brand new charges: Resisting arrest and domestic battery.

now the thug, will probably try to sue the courts stating that the judge hurt him, and should not have intervined. That guy is dangerous, to attack that girl like that in fron tof a judge???? Can you imagine what he has done to her behind closed doors.

yes, cause that's the last thing this criminal needs, causing mayhem in court, in front of a judge. I am sure the judge won't have any problem believing who is the problem.

Way to go, Judge!!! I know some that would have either just watched or ran out the back door. By the way, the deputy with the spray bottle was spraying rubbing alcohol on him. They use that to remove ink from people who have been fingerprinted.

been there    

Way to go Judge!!! Finally a man with conviction (no pun intended) who just cant sit by and watch another abuser get away with bullying a woman. They should make it a policy for all court officials to give the abusers what they've been dishing out.
