Man Tased in Courtroom after Sentencing

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A man went ballistic in a St. Louis Circuit Courtroom.

44 year old Steven Huffman, who officials say has a history of assault charges, was sentenced to twelve years on another assault conviction.

Upon hearing the sentence, he threatened the victim, cursed the judge and head-butted a sheriff’s deputy.

Deputies tased him, and now he faces even more jail time on another assault charge.
