VIDEO: Inmate threatens judge during bond hearing
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A Kentucky man is facing multiple charges after threatening a judge during his bond hearing.
According to WAVE, Michael Ray's bond hearing for four charges, including terroristic threatening and assault , started off calm, but less than a minute in, he got upset over the amount.
After the county requested a $25,000 bond, Ray, 36, scoffed at the number.
"You think that's funny," the judge is heard asking on courtroom video.
"I think that's hilarious," Ray responds before walking off.
"Alright, so bond is $50,000," the judge said. "No bail credit. He's lucky I didn't hold him in contempt. He thinks these are funny charges."
Less than a minute later, it got worse.
"I hope I see on the streets," Ray said about the judge.
He also flipped off the judge and continued to make threats.
"He's special. He really is. It took a lot of convincing just to get him here," an officer said.
