Man drinks bleach in Florida courtroom after jury finds him guilty

A man found guilty of armed robbery by a Florida jury drank a cup of bleach after the verdict was read.

The family of Jermaine Bell, who has been in custody for more than three years fighting the charges against him, says he drank a cup of bleach. It’s not known how Bell obtained the bleach.

It was reported that Bell became so sick that he was removed from the courtroom on a stretcher and taken to a hospital. He’s expected to survive, the report stated.
