Today a mouse suspended a murder trial while court ushers attempted to catch a mouse with an empty water jug within the dock.

While the defendant climbed up a chair and knelt on it to prevent the mouse from climbing up the defendant’s leg.

The Jury was taken out of the courtroom until the situation was under control, with the jury looking unimpressed with the interruption.

A staff member within the dock attempted to grab the fast intruder but it managed to get away by running off into another courtroom.

we are sure this little rodent and friends will be back before a courtroom in no time.
