Suspect lunges at officer, grabs gun in court

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla.- Authorities were caught off guard when an inmate puts into action a daring plan inside a Florida courtroom.

The suspect was in court and patiently waited for an officer to walk by his seat.

As a female officer was walking by, he lunges at her and grabs for her gun.

The officer pushed the inmate's hand away as other deputies grabbed the man and hustled him out of the courtroom.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the botched escape attempt.

However, the suspect could face additional charges.
