WHITE RIVER JCT., Vt. (WCAX) A Hartford man facing assault charges lashed out a Windsor County judge in court Wednesday.
Thomas LaFountaine, 36, was upset he had to spend the night in jail. And he interrupted, yelled and swore through his almost eight-minute-long hearing Wednesday morning.
"You're not my honor, I'm not honored by your presence... You liar, you fake, you ain't a judge," LaFountaine said to the judge.
The judge ultimately decided to raise LaFountaine's bail from $1,000 to $10,000 and ordered him to undergo a psychiatric evaluation while he is awaiting trial.
LaFountaine pleaded not guilty last month to a charge of first-degree aggravated domestic assault after his estranged wife says he hit her with a sharp piece of wood during an argument.
