Michael Jackson Shows Up Late for Court in Pajamas

From the account of today's trial proceedings on CNN:

Thursday's trial proceedings got off to a late start when Jackson failed to arrive on time for the scheduled 8:30 a.m. (11:30 a.m. ET) start.

Defense lawyer Thomas Mesereau Jr. told Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Rodney S. Melville that his client was at a hospital for treatment of a "serious back problem."

[So he called up the doctor and the doctor said, no more young boys jumping on the bed.]

But Melville, who last month had to delay jury selection by a week after Jackson was briefly hospitalized with the flu, refused to accept the excuse. The judge threatened to revoke Jackson's $3 million bail and jail him for the remainder of the trial if he didn't show up within an hour.

[Stall him, I can't find my nose...]

Jackson missed Melville's deadline by three minutes. Appearing disheveled and wearing pajama bottoms and sandals, Jackson walked slowly into the courthouse. A bodyguard and Jackson's father supported the singer at his elbows.

[I suspect that Jackson later regretted the decision to arrive to court wearing pajama bottoms, especially as his alleged victim recounted Jackson giving him handjobs. It's awfully hard to hide a stiffie in pajama bottoms, and I have no doubt that the Uberfreak had one at the time. Sick fucker.]
