Just after being found guilty on sexual assault, comedian Bill Cosby reportedly had an outburst at his prosecutor and screamed obscenities while his potential incarceration without bail was discussed.
Reporting on information from correspondents in the courtroom, Fox News’ Shep Smith noted that Cosby yelled “obscenities” at the district attorney when he said the comedian’s bail should be revoked.
As Fox News producer Lissa Kaplan told the host, former basketball player and Cosby victim Andrea Constand noted the comedian’s $3 million bail was a “paltry sum” for the disgraced TV star — a comment that led Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele to ask for the revocation. When the DA mentioned that Cosby owns a private plane, the comedian stood up in court and declared he did not.
As ABC News producer Stephanie Wash noted, Cosby called the DA an “assh*le” in the courtroom during the outburst.
Bill Cosby just called the DA an asshole in court, while discussing whether bail should be revoked, per @CDFrancescani.
DA expressed fear Cosby is a flight risk.
Judge asked to where.
DA: To any place, he has a plane!
Cosby, screamed: He doesn’t have a plane you asshole!
