Courtroom outbursts caused the judge to call for an adjournment.
Day 15 of the Michael Jackson Doctor Trial abruptly ended with courtroom outbursts from the defense.
It started when Dr. Steven Shafer, a propofol expert, was presented with an infusion machine and asked to demonstrate how Dr. Conrad Murray created the propofol drip for Michael Jackson.
Apparently, that didn’t go over too well with Murray, who sat looking rather displeased in the courtroom.
He soon appeared riled up. According to E! Online, Murray turned to Dr. Paul White, a potential defense witness, and loudly whispered, “Can you believe that?”
White then turned to the media present and said, “What a scumbag!”
Judge Michael Pastor abruptly ended the proceedings by calling the lawyers into a meeting — essentially adjourning court for the day — leaving many wondering what happened?
Dr. White told E! Online that his view of Dr. Shafer was forever changed by that demonstration.
What did he mean by that? Was it unfair for Dr. Shafer to show the court how to properly work the machine?
You be the judge. It looks as if the defense will have to wait a little while longer to get their case started.
