Why, you ask?
Weusi was on trial for kidnapping and assault.
On Monday, January 26, 2009, he smuggled a bag of feces (his?) into court and spread them in his attorney's (Jeffrey Martin) hair and on his face. He then flung the rest at the jurors but his aim was bad so no jurors were hit.
The judge raised Weusi's bail from $250,000 to $1 million.
