The camera on the uniform inside a police station recorded the moment when a man from Ohio, USA, attacked his lawyer, when he heard the judge's decision.

The man was sentenced to 47 years in prison, something he apparently did not expect. As soon as he heard the decision, he was "thrown" from the defendant's chair and attacked the lawyer, punching him.

David Chislton was charged with arson and assault. According to the court, he had hit his then partner with a gun and was holding her hostage.

He then set fire to the apartment building where they were staying when the girl accused him of sexually abusing her 15-year-old daughter.

As seen in the video, the perpetrator beats the lawyer, while the police try to control him. The lawyer was taken to hospital with a broken nose and several bruises.
