Policing the courts

The Columbia Missourian has a nice feature about the court marshals who work at the Boone County courthouse. My favorite part:

Baer, 59, has seen his share of hairy situations— like the time a man came into the courthouse five minutes before it closed saying he needed to talk to a judge about recalling four or five felony warrants for his arrest. The man wouldn’t leave when Baer refused to let him speak to the judge.

“This guy was in a wheelchair and we literally had to fight him all the way down to the holding cell,” Baer said. “We finally got him down there, but he was one of the strongest guys we ever had to fight. It took four of us to get him down there.”
