Michigan Man Shows Up For Zoom Court While Driving
And he had a suspended license, so there's that. Needless to say, the judge was not amused.
Kevon Burns logged in for his court date on Zoom for driving on a suspended license, while driving on a suspended license.
The judge in his case was not the least bit amused by his lack of forethought, telling him to pull over and park before she would render a verdict.
Judge Erane C. Washington, of the 14B District Court in Ypsilanti, is pictured in the middle of the Zoom call, and askes Burns, “Are you driving right now?”
He replies, “Yeah,” and Washington says, “You’re suspended and you’re in court—first of all interrupting the court.”
Then Burns says he’s “not even driving,” he is just driving the car for a friend.
Washington tells him, “Alright. I’m going to need you to park the car and get out the car, Ok?”
Burns replies, “If you’re having a bad day, just say that.”
Nice deflection, but Judge Erane was not buying it.
Washington says, “No, I’m not having a bad day ‘til you started talking while driving at the same time that you’re suspended.”
The TikTok user who originally posted the video said the judge should drag him in on a bench warrant.
No word on if the man faces any additional charges for his antics.
