During his sentencing hearing for attempted battery with substantial bodily harm, a three-time felon reportedly attacked Las Vegas district court judge Mary Kay Holthus, according to online reports.

A video circulating and obtained by The North Carolina Beat shows the judge sitting on the bench around 11:00 a.m.,moments before 30-year-old Deobra Redden lunged at her and attacked her.

Clark County court officials quickly intervened to subdue Redden. At one point, Reddin was getting the best of one of the bailiffs as the video showed him landing punches on the officer. Moments later, someone could be heard yelling “call 911” as Judge Holthus was not seen resurfacing before the video ends. According to 8NewsNow, the judge took cover.

Before Judge Holthus was attacked, Redden’s attorney asked her to put his client on probation, but the judge declined, angering Redden. On April 23, Redden “threatened to bust the kneecaps” of another man, which resulted in substantial bodily harm, according to documents.
