A Judge Wearing Robe and Wig Rugby-Tackles Escaping Prisoner

According to a story that appeared on Reuters, “a judge sporting full robes and a wig rugby-tackled a sex offender to the floor to prevent him from fleeing the court where he was on trial, the Press Association reported on Tuesday.”

34-year-old prisoner tried to bolt for the fire escape from the court room, as the jury was leaving the room.  The judge, 60, leaped to stop the escapee as he was already through the door, grabbing him by the throat and pinning him underneath on the floor as they both fell.  The incident happened last year.
