Dealing with a parasite of a lawyer can be frustrating, but dealing with a lawyer covered head to toe in parasites?
Disgusting doesn’t even begin to describe it…
On Monday, the Rogers County Courthouse in Oklahoma was evacuated and shut down after an attorney arrived with bed bugs.
Scott Walton of the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office explained that the bugs were visibly crawling on the man, who has not been identified:
“A courthouse user noticed them and said she could visibly see something crawling on his neck, which was later found to be bed bugs.”
Walton explained that the lawyer was covered in such an “abundance” of parasites that they started to fall from his clothing as he walked around the courtroom:
“He had also placed his jacket over some file folders, and when his jacket was moved, bed bugs were discovered there.”
Bed bugs feed on human blood and, as a result, create an unpleasant and itchy rash on any skin exposed while sleeping. Walton said that somehow, it seems the attorney was completely unaware of the parasitic problem:
“We’ve evacuated for fire alarms and bomb threats but never to my knowledge for bed bugs. This is my first experience I’ve had with them.”
Walton explained that they are anything but sympathetic with the attorney:
“We are certainly not happy with someone coming in that condition to inconvenience everyone else in that building.”.
And worst of all, according to Clarke, the man showed no remorse for all of the serious inconvenience he caused.
Clarke explained that one judge alone had 146 cases on her docket for the manic Monday morning, and everything had to be placed on pause because of this parasitic infestation.
“I don’t even think he cared.”
Everyone is repulsed at both the attorney and the bed bugs.
How can someone be covered in bugs and not even notice? Did he notice and not say anything?
We have so many questions.

These parasites in particular are tough to get rid of – even after an extermination.
Yeah, I wouldn’t visit this courthouse anytime soon.
Just in case.
Come to Arizona where bed bugs are in the hospital's and the fire dept can't get rid of them… Bold statement sad but the truth.

I'm sure he cares when they're biting him but if his home is infested then so are his clothes.theyre nearly impossible to get rid of. I feel bad for him really.

Bed bugs are almost impossible to kill. They make roaches look weak.

Guess the courthouse needs to check for bugs. Never know where those little buggers are & hard to detect. Hope they exterminate them all & Court is able to run smoothly soon.

Safe to say everyone else in that third-floor courtroom wanted to crawl in a hole and get as far away from that attorney as possible.
