Court Reporter of the Day
Stenographer Ron Tolkin of Brooklyn, New York helped subdue a defendant who had attacked a female federal prosecutor and then dutifully transcribed the rather salty exchange from a tape recording:
COURT REPORTER: I will beat the shit out of you, you motherfucker. You cock sucker. Who the fuck do you think you are?
U.S. MARSHAL ALVAREZ: Get off.
COURT REPORTER: Try it on me, man. I'll kick you in the fuckin balls.
U.S. MARSHAL ALVAREZ: Get off her.
THE DEFENDANT: I apologize.
COURT REPORTER: You apologize, you piece of shit.
