Convicted Felon Launches Brutal Attack on Inmate During Court Hearing

In an incident at the Clark County District Court in Las Vegas, convicted felon Dustin Langham launched a brutal attack on fellow inmate Berdon Bridge during a court hearing. The assault, captured on courtroom cameras, showed Langham unexpectedly unleashing a series of blindside punches on Bridge, prompting court personnel to intervene and separate the two men.

Langham, who had recently pleaded guilty to biting a corrections officer’s hand, was facing multiple counts of battery to an officer stemming from a previous incident. Court documents revealed that Langham had a history of legal troubles, including a prior conviction for battery with substantial bodily harm.

Bridge, on the other hand, had pleaded guilty to a felony charge of attempted ownership or possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. As part of his plea deal, he was sentenced to one to four years in prison by Judge Bita Yeager.

This incident marks the second courtroom attack in the same courthouse within a month. Just weeks ago, Deobra Redden made headlines when he launched a flying attack on Judge Mary Kay Holthus during a sentencing hearing. Redden, a three-time felon, expressed his desire to harm the judge, claiming she had it out for him.

Additionally, a separate incident occurred in the courthouse hallways, where Yousuf Azami, a defendant facing charges of kidnapping, lewdness, and sexual assault on a teenage girl, was punched in the face by Glenn Cromwell Jr., who is believed to be connected to the victim in the case. The altercation was swiftly broken up by bystanders, including a police officer.

The repeated instances of violence within the courthouse raise concerns about the safety and security of both inmates and court personnel. Authorities are likely to review and reinforce security measures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.
