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.

This judge is awesome! You certainly do not see this everyday! He had absolutely no concern for his own safety. What a hero!

It's hard to make out, but is somebody removing handcuffs from the guy, and the split second they're taken off he attacks?
