Man Charged in Courthouse Scuffle

December 4, 2005
Police Contained Man With Taser Guns

A man involved in a scuffle in the Milwaukee County Courthouse last week has been charged with disorderly conduct, resisting an officer and battery to an officer.

John Edget appeared in court on Sunday after he allegedly tried to escape from a sentencing hearing last week.

Edget was being sentenced for armed robbery.

Police said he started yelling at deputies and ran out of the courtroom.

Deputies tackled Edget and used Taser guns to subdue him.

Edget is expected back in court later in December.
