Judge Rabrrrrr off the bench after locking up entire courtroom, nobody fessed up to cellphone
http://www.wftv.com/news/14713204/detail.html

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. -- A New York judge who jailed a courtroom full of people over a ringing cell phone is off the bench.

Judge Robert Restaino was removed Tuesday by a state judicial panel.

During a court session in March 2005, Restaino got upset when a cell phone went off.

He demanded that the phone be handed over, threatening to lock up everybody if no one came forward.

When nobody did, the judge ordered all 46 people in the room hauled off to the city jail, where they were searched.

Those who couldn't post bond were shackled and bused to the county lockup.

Excellent.

8. Egads. The only thing worse than a ringing cellphone in the courthouse
is a dry cleaners that loses your pants.
