MIAMI, FL. (July 3, 2015) – A defendant broke down in court after an unexpected middle school reunion with the judge.

Arthur Booth, 49, is a suspected burglar. On June 29 Booth was allegedly seen leaving the scene of a burglary, and then he failed to pull over as police tried to conduct a traffic stop.

According to the police report, “Mr. Booth drove his vehicle onto the median and drove onto the oncoming traffic lanes. Mr. Booth then bailed from his vehicle.”

WSVN reports Booth encountered Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Mindy Glazer in bond court on June 30.

“Hi, Mr. Booth, you’re back. This time you’re charged with a burglary,” said Judge Glazer.

Then she said, “Mr. Booth, I have a question for you.”

“Yes, ma’am?” he responded.

“Did you go to Nautilus for middle school?”

“Oh, my goodness,” said Booth, as he covered his mouth in shock.

Judge Glazer continued and said, “This was the nicest kid in middle school.”

Booth started to cry.

Judge Glazer went on to say the she would have never expected this type of behavior from him, and she offered him some words of encouragement. “What’s sad is how old we’ve become. Good luck to you, sir. I hope you’re able to come out of this OK and just lead a lawful life.”
