A man who called a judge a ‘racist ass b*tch’ because he was sentenced to 22 years in prison has had six more years added to his sentence.
Manson M. Bryant, 32, appeared in court earlier this month to face charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, and carrying a concealed weapon.
However, he was less than happy when he received his 22 year sentence and decided to take his anger out on the judge, who became the subject of an expletive-filled rant.
While appearing in Lake County Common Pleas court on March 1, the Independent reports Bryant sat and listened as the judge announced his sentence.
However, when Judge Eugene Lucci declared Bryant would spend 22 years in prison it became too much for the defendant, who stood up from his chair and began shouting at the judge.
The shocking moment was captured in footage of the hearing, which has since gone viral on social media.

In the footage, Bryant can be seen getting out of his chair before he screams at the judge, calling him a ‘racist ass b*tch’.
F*ck your courtroom, you racist ass b*tch! F*ck your courtroom, man. You racist as f*ck! Twenty-two f*cking years! You racist ass b*tch.
At this point, officers in the courtroom restrained Bryant and pulled him away from the judge as he continued to yell.
Judge Lucci, in response, added a further six years onto the defendant’s sentence, telling him the maximum imprisonment was needed as he was not showing remorse.
The judge said, over Bryant’s shouting:
Actually, you know what? Remember, remember when I said that you had shown remorse. When I said you had a certain amount of remorse, I was mistaken. The court determines, the court determines a maximum imprisonment is needed.
According to court records, as per ABC News, Bryant ’caused serious psychological harm to both of his victims and serious economic harm to one victim’.
Court records also state that Bryant committed the crimes as ‘part of organized criminal activity.’
New York Post report this was the fourth time defendant Manson Bryant had stood before Judge Eugene Lucci.
