Dorleans Philidor, 33, was appearing in front of Circuit Court Judge Lisa Walsh on a burglary charge when he took aim at her with his excrement.
However, the man’s waste did not reach it’s intended target.
Dozens of officers swarmed Philidor—who was seated in a wheelchair at the time—while lawyers fled the courtroom.
“It’s protein! It’s good for you!” the assailant reportedly yelled out during the commotion.
Witnesses also say that the dung hurler began eating his feces.
“It was intense. The corrections officers and police officers were swarming. Like 60 of them,” said witness Allen Rios, who posted a brief clip of the incident to his Instagram page. “They told everyone to leave and you couldn’t go back in. It was a hazardous area.”
Philidor also delayed proceedings a day prior when he defecated in the holding cell adjacent to the courtroom and smeared his waste over himself and the cell, according to officials.
Jurors found Philidor not guilty of the crime for which he was appearing in court on Friday afternoon.
Despite being found not guilty, the poo-pelter is still being held by the county while he awaits trial for an unrelated charge of grand theft auto.
It is unclear if Philidor will face charges for his feces-driven courtroom outburst.
