Hero Judge Speaks in First Nationally Televised Interview (11/8)

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (November 7, 2016) — Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen sits down with Judge John McBain in his first nationally televised interview as he details the courtroom video that went viral after he leapt from his bench to subdue an aggressive defendant. The defendant was accused of stalking and had grown increasingly agitated with the judge and the petitioner, and ultimately made a move towards the petitioner. The result was the judge jumping off the bench, discarding his robe, and helping the court officer wrestle him to the ground. “I’m known as kind of a no-nonsense judge and I don’t tolerate disorder and disruption in my courtroom,” Judge McBain tells Crime Watch Daily. “I had to make a decision to act…I would hope that most judges would do the same for their court officer,” he adds.
