An accused criminal in South Carolina took a swing at his own attorney and the courtroom camera captured it all.

Lamarcus Williamson was in court for a sentencing hearing and, although he was handcuffed, the officers behind him knew he was up to something.
Before they could do anything, Williamson punched his attorney in the face. The lawyer said he never saw it coming.
Williamson is now looking at six additional months for contempt of court on top of his 15-year sentence. He could also face charges for assault.
