Florida Man Drinks Bleach in Courtroom After Being Found Guilty of Armed Robbery

A Florida man downed a cup of bleach in a courtroom moments after hearing the jury read his verdict in which he was found guilty of armed robbery.

Jermaine Bell, 38, has spent more than three years in custody for the December 2018 robbery for which he was convicted. He pulled a gun on employees at the Millennium Engine Plating while he was disguised as a courier.

Bell was seen drinking the bleach from a white disposable cup before an officer approached him with a trash can and attempted to have the inmate spit up the liquid. But Bell continued to drink from the cup until he eventually sat down. 

He immediately became very sick after drinking the bleach and was transported out of the courtroom in Miami on a stretcher. He was then taken to the hospital for medical treatment. Read more NYpost
