Nashville (AP) -- When a Nashville judge ordered a man to jail, the accused didn't like what he heard.
Courtroom video shows Bert Watkins Junior slugging his attorney and diving over the rail into the spectators gallery in an attempt to escape Monday.
Security guards were on top of it and quickly grabbed Watkins, cuffed him and took him to jail
Judge Mark Fishburn had just ordered Watkins jailed after revoking his bond on assault and evading charges.
The staff at the new Adolpho A. Birch Criminal Justice Center say it was the first case of an inmate trying to make a break from it.
