Man with suspended license appears for virtual court hearing while driving

He had a virtual court appearance on May 15 and appeared by car.

In the video, Harris said he was on his way to his doctor’s office and asked for a second appointment.

After a long pause, Judge Simpson seemed stunned and said, “No, I’m looking at his record. He doesn’t have a driver’s license. His license has been revoked and he’s just driving.”

Simpson then said, “I don’t even know why he would do that,” while revoking his bail and urging Harris to turn himself in.

The video showed Harris saying “Oh my God” while tilting his head back.
