Demetrius Lewis decided he would court Judge Tabitha Blackmon during his court session. And while that may have been acceptable had it taken place outside of the courtroom, when it’s a handcuffed defendant complimenting the physical features of a presiding judge, it makes for an awkward experience. Judge Blackmon reminded Lewis, “Flattery will get you everywhere, but not in here.” She set his bail at $5,000.
The court hearing segment was so hilarious that it made mainstream news. Inside Edition reported on the incident below.
