reporting on charges levied against attorney Carolyn Machelic Barnes (pic) for assaulting a Travis County Sheriff's deputy at the courthouse security checkpoint when the officer demanded AttorneyBarnes turn over her eyeglass repair kit. According to the Sheriff, the 53 year old Barnes was kicking some serious security ass!
It's actually pretty amazing how often we badass attorneys assault courthouse security. After all we act like we own the place, the courthouse that is; like there might be a reason to be there, God forbid.
At least in this case there are videos, and Attorney Barnes is quoted in the the report as saying, let's see the video. You know when this happened to me, I said the same thing,--and, damn if they didn't claim that they didn't have any of the actual incident. Funny how that happens. They certainly would not have wanted to turn over the video of a Sheriff's deputy lifting my eyeglasses off my face in order to directly apply pepper spray to my eyeballs.
Good luck attorney Barnes!
