‘If You Want To Fight, Let’s Go Out Back and I’ll Just Beat Your Ass’

BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – Judge John Murphy and Bevard County public defender Andrew Weinstock exchanged heated words during court today in which Murphy allegedly pressured Weinstock to get his client to waive his right to a speedy trial.

On the video, Murphy said to Weinstock, “You know, if I had a rock I would throw it at you right now. Stop pissing me off. Just sit down.”

On the video, Murphy can be heard calling Weinstock out to come to the back hallway, an area where there are no cameras, which is where the fight broke out.

“If you want to fight, let’s go out back and I’ll just beat your ass,” Murphy tells Weinstock before the two head out of the courtroom.
