Judge Orders Community Service for Cell Phone Ringing in Court

judge doesn't F around!

An Indiana judge detained and questioned a row of spectators when a cell phone rang 3 times in her courtroom. She later ordered two people to serve community service for contempt of court.

"The next time you come to court, don't bring your cell phone!", said the judge.

We couldn't have said it any better.

Although we're wondering - these people were said to be "spectators" in the court room. Does anyone work anymore? Can't they find something more entertaining to do than spectating in a court room? I'd rather play chicken, driving into oncoming traffic than to sit in a courtroom all day.
