VIDEO: Oregon Man Tries to Grab Officer's Gun in Courtroom Confrontation"
An Oregon man—identified as 27-year-old Patrick Lemmon—abruptly got up from his seat and attempted to grab the gun of an officer sitting just feet to his left. The incident was captured on video made public on YouTube by The Oregonian.
Lemmon was seated in a Lincoln County (OR) courtroom without any sort of restraints, because a judge had denied deputies' request.
Lemmon was on trial on allegations that he pointed a realistic-looking fake gun at two guests at a beachfront condo in Newport, threatened to kill them and then robbed them of cash and valuables, according to a probable cause affidavit, according to OregonLive.com.
