FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., June 12 (UPI) -- Words may not be able to break bones, but they can get you tossed in jail.
During an appearance in Broward Bond Court on Thursday, a domestic violence suspect received nearly a year in jail for ranting at a judge after he was denied pre-trial release from jail.
Christopher Colon was sentenced to 364 days in jail after Judge John "Jay" Hurley declared him in contempt of court.
Hurley denied the 27-year-old pre-trial release on a domestic battery charge and that was when the fun began.
Colon told the judge, "Then I'll see you guys again with a lawyer and a lawsuit too," and walked away.
The judge instructed Colon to come back and he did -- with a vengeance.
"And you can go [expletive] yourself too," Colon said. He then repeated that everyone could "suck his [expletive]" a number of times.
Colon was then told that he was going to be held in contempt of court if he kept it up.
"I don't give a [expletive]. Go ahead, I have lawyers," Colon responded. He then started railing about "pussy-ass crackers" trying to put away African-Americans and Hispanics.
Colon went on to mention Hitler and laughed as Hurley calmly told him he'd basically be spending the next year in jail. "[Expletive] you," was Colon's closing remark.
He'll now have a year to think about whether he would've liked to end with something a little more creative.
