Florida Inmate Sends Public Defender To Hospital After Random Attack

More crazy news coming out of Florida today...

A Broward County Courthouse inmate sent a public defender to the hospital this morning after he punched her in the head.

The security video shows the veteran defender, Julia Chase, standing next to a defendant when the inmate gets out of his seat and walks up to her. He then punches her in the head with his left fist. He was identified as 27-year-old William Green, and then taken away by deputies.

“It was very unfortunate and our hearts go out to her because she’s carrying the good weight of our office every single day trying to represent folks in that very difficult environment,” Public Defender Gordon Weeks told WSVN News. “That is totally inappropriate and not what is to be expected of your job as a public defender. The jail needs to take a little more precautions when it comes to the safety of individuals, particularly the public defenders that are placed in that environment.”

It's unclear why the inmate attacked Chase. Charges are currently pending.
