VIDEO: Defendant Convicted of Armed Robbery Drinks Bleach in Court After Guilty Verdict

A man reportedly drank a cup of bleach in a Florida courtroom after being convicted of armed robbery.

According to WPLG, Jermaine Bell, 38, was convicted by a jury in a Miami-Dade County courtroom when the incident occurred. He was said to have immediately become sick and was transported to the hospital.

WPLG reported that Bell survived the ordeal and is in stable condition. However, it remains a mystery how a cup of bleach got into the courtroom.
