Tension inside a New Jersey courtroom exploded during a hearing for two men charged with double murder in connection with a pair of bodies found scorched inside a car belonging to a “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star.
The fight unfolded after Clarence Williams and Gerry Thomas were denied bail. Both men were charged with killing Aaron Anderson, 27, and 25-year-old Antonio Vega Jr., who were found fatally shot inside a 2015 Audi registered to reality television personality Kim DePaola.
Thomas was being led from the courtroom in cuffs when the heated exchange between Anderson’s mother, Michele Ryerson, and one of his female relatives unfolded, NJ.com reported.
The bickering quickly turned into a shouting match that brought the entire courtroom to its feet.
Thomas’ relative attempted to exit amid the shouting — but turned back and engaged after a cellphone was chucked in her direction. Another person can be seen ready to throw their shoe in a recording of the courtroom altercation.
After several minutes, officers were able to quell the crowd and separate the brawlers.
Thomas’ lawyer, Greg Aprile, demanded the names of the people involved in the fight, whom he said threatened Thomas’ relative. He also threatened to have them barred from future proceedings.
