So, I’m waiting in the Stockton courthouse for the latest Melissa Huckaby hearing, and something catches my eye as I’m talking with a couple other reporters.
Blurry camera phone evidence after the jump…
Sorry about the shoddy picture quality. The camera on my Blackberry isn’t that great. A guy dressed up as a prisoner, with an orange “Department of Corrections” jumpsuit and all… at a courthouse. When I first saw him, I was like, uh… should he be out there? Then I went in for a closer look because, really, there couldn’t just be an inmate strolling around the courthouse.
It was just a costume. There was a witch right by him, so that was the give-away. But the guy in the inmate costume was yuking it up with a couple of security guards, leading me to believe that this was just a joke. But still… while funny, isn’t it a little inappropriate.
The inmate guy wasn’t the only Halloween practicioner, as a couple records clerks got into the fun too. One was a yellow peanut M&M and another appeared to be a dark angel. Good to see that people can have a little fun today.
I’m dressed up as a busy reporter — an ensemble complete with notebook, pen and recorder.
