Miami, Florida judge, Mindy Glazer, was presiding over the case of Booth, arrested for burglary and theft yesterday. But she suddenly realized she had seen him before in middle school. They had once been playmates at Nautilus Middle School. She asked him if
he had attended the same middle school she did, Booth instantly perked up and seemed to recognize the judge.
He broke into a huge smile when he spotted his old pal. But then remembering the embarrassing circumstances of their reunion, he immediately broke down and repeatedly wails, “Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness!” In the heartrending scene, he seems to realize the shambles he’s made of his life and his smile of recognition turns to tears as he bows his head in front of the judge while she expresses her dismay at his circumstances.
Here is the video:
Mindy said: “I always used to wonder what happened to you, sir. I’m sorry to see you here.” Booth covers his head and cries as Mindy tells the court: “This was the nicest kid in middle school. He was the best kid in middle school. I used to play football with him. Look what has happened.”
Booth’s cousin, Melissa Miller, says Booth used to be a scholar and athlete, but that drugs took over his life and he eventually turned to crime. Mindy wished him luck and told him she hopes he turns his life around. She then set his bail at $44,000….. disappointed Booth promised to tell his male children never to have any female playmate in school…..
