If you're going down, you might as well go down swinging. Am I right?

Derrick Thomas, arrested in Jonesboro, Arkansas last month for indecent exposure and "enjoying himself," decided to expose himself again. This time in Judge Keith Blackman’s courtroom. Yesterday. 

According to news reports Thomas was granted permission to leave the courtroom for a drink of water. He returned — running by all accounts — with his shirt off, his pants around his ankles, and his arms in the air. 

 “Court is back in session,” Thomas was quoted as saying. 

Thomas laughed as three police officers forced his pants up and removed him from the courtroom. Then he added something to the effect of, “They will put [on my] tombstone that [I] was the one that got naked in the courtroom.”

Everybody has a bucket list, apparently.
