Cockroaches Let Loose In Courtroom! Know Why

New York: In a bizarre incident, hundreds of cockroaches were released in a New York courtroom.

Yes, you heard that right.

The unheard-of incident took place in Albany City Court after a defendant started to film courtroom proceedings. He was told to stop, but refused.

An altercation followed, and suddenly hundreds of cockroaches brought into the courthouse in plastic containers were released.

The court had to be closed for rest of the day for fumigation.

A 34-year-old woman who was present in the courtroom was arrested for charges related to the altercation, including disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration and tampering with physical evidence, news agencies reported.

“What transpired is not advocacy or activism, it is criminal behaviour with the intent to disrupt a proceeding and cause damage,” the Office of Court Administration said in a statement.
