If Ramona had the choice between being represented by this lawyer and jail, she gladly lock herself up and throw away the key!

The Rogers County Courthouse in Oklahoma was forced to shut down on Monday after an unidentified lawyer had bed bugs falling out of his clothes. Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton told KJRH that the lawyer entered a third floor courtroom and that’s when they spotted the beg bugs falling from his clothing. The lawyer was also spotted shaking his jacket over the prosecution files.

Thankfully, officials decided to close the courtroom for the rest of the day and called exterminators. Rogers County Courthouse posted a warning letter advising employees and people who were inside the building to treat themselves if they think they were exposed to the bed bugs.
