(NBC News) — Chaos erupted during Larry Nassar’s sentencing hearing on Friday as the father of three girls who say they were molested charged at the disgraced gymnastics doctor and was taken down by court officers.
“Let me have that son of a bitch,” Randall Margraves shouted as he ran toward the witness box where Nassar was sitting.
“Give me one minute with that ba*****!”
Two of Margraves’ daughters had just finished giving victim impact statements in Eaton County Court when the father cursed at Nassar and was admonished by the judge for using profanity.
“I would ask you to grant me five minutes in a room with this demon,” Margraves asked the judge.
“You know I can’t do that,” she answered.
That’s when Margraves suddenly ran toward the front of the courtroom. Court officers wrestled him to the ground as he shouted at them, “What if this happened to you guys?”
The sentencing hearing was temporarily halted.
