INDIANAPOLIS (RNN) - A defendant went wild in a courtroom Thursday morning, and it was all caught on video.

Jordan Rhoades, 20, threw a temper tantrum after showing up more than an hour late to a probation hearing, WXIN reported.

After getting a one-year sentence, Rhoades began shouting, drawing contempt of court charges.

Video footage shows the outburst. He threw at least four chairs at the judge and courtroom staff, officials said, hitting one deputy prosecutor and damaging a computer monitor.

Deputies arrested Rhoades after he tried to leave the courthouse. He's being charged with battery and attempted battery on a public official.
