A judge threatens to beat up a public defender, right before punching him in the head outside a Florida coutroom.

The two exchanged words about a case after the attorney refused to waive his client's right to a speedy trial.

It all escalated from there.

Deputies had to be brought in to break up the fight.

The judge then returned and finished ruling over court appearances.

He was not charged, but could be disciplined.
