Courtroom brawls come few and far in between–at least in the United States. When they are linked to a television personality its almost unheard of. Well, as you may already know two men were found dead in a burning car owned by “Friend to the housewives,” of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Kim DePaola, or “Kim D.” as everyone likes to call her.
Kim has not been indicted or implemented in the mens’ deaths, but emotions did run high during a recent court hearing involving the families of the victims and their suspected killers.
Clarence Williams and Gerry Thomas, in court for a detention hearing, were ordered held without bail when the brawl broke out.
The two Paterson residents previously pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the deaths of Aaron Anderson and Antonio Vega Jr., who were found last week inside a burning Audi.
The car was owned by Kim DePaola, who often appears on the Bravo reality show. Anderson’s mother has said he borrowed the car from DePaola’s son.
The judge warned the families of the suspects and the victims to keep their emotions in check and remain composed.
“I understand you have very strong feelings and may want to blurt something out,” Passaic County Superior Court Judge Ernest Caposela said.
But an argument broke out, and people in the gallery yelled obscenities and threw objects.
Thomas’ attorney, Gregory Aprile, shouted to the judge during the brawl that he wanted the names of everyone involved. Aprile said he may ask that they be banned from future proceedings.
Charges are pending for one person involved in the altercation, according to the Passaic County Sheriff’s office.
Obviously “no f***s were given” as the kids like to say nowadays. We are definitely hoping justice is served and the court proceedings beef up their security!
