60 year old high-court judge in wig and robes rugby tackles escaping defendent

Story here. I bet that was a bit of a strange sight.

“As he went through the door, His Honour Judge Marks Moore grabbed him round the throat to try to bring him down.”

Should have been a penalty.

Fucking referees.

Don’t they wear pumps as a part of the judicial outfit too?

Where was the bailiff? There’s always two or three hanging around in our courts upstairs. I would have like to have seen the judge with robes flying and wig askew… ha.
