Awesome :

Court is no laughing matter as far as one North Carolina judge is concerned. A Fayetteville man who was waiting for his case to be heard Friday drew the ire of Judge Toni King after starting to laugh in a Cumberland County courtroom. Authorities said King asked 47-year-old Johnny Montgomery why he was laughing, but the man refused to say.
King ordered Montgomery to jail on a misdemeanor charge.


I guess it wasn't a laughing matter.

Contempt of court. If you're doing anything that a judge doesn't like in his courtroom, he can throw you in jail for a night or two (might be more, idk).

He was interrupting the court, and didn't stop the judge told him to stop, sounds acceptable to me.

Wow, epic selective quoting TS!

King ordered Montgomery to jail on a misdemeanor charge. As deputies were preparing to take Montgomery to jail, they searched him and found more than 3 grams of crack cocaine. Montgomery was charged with felony drug possession. Authorities said he was being processed Friday evening and does not yet have a court date nor an attorney.

same to you. if you read the quotes you just posted it said they were already taking him to jail for laughing, they found the crack afterwards.

Damnit beaten to it, yea smoking crack is a pretty legit reason to laugh in court. Having 3 grams in court may not have been an awesome idea however.

kind of stupid for taking him in for laughing. maybe he thought of a dirty joke that he felt innappropriate to share with the courtroom. but anyway they found drugs (probably why he was laughing), so good thing they did sentence him

I don't see how it's a good thing they arrested him. It's not really the government business what goes in your body. That's not to say smoking crack or taking such a large amount into a courthouse was a smart decision though.
