Moment felon brutally attacks fellow inmate during hearing in Las Vegas courtroom in front of VERY unimpressed judge

A convicted felon brutally beat a fellow inmate during a court hearing in Las Vegas, only leaving the judge visibly unimpressed with the attack. 

Dustin Langham, 18, who had just pleaded guilty to biting a correction officer’s hand last year, was seen initiating an aggressive assault in Clark County District Court Judge Bita Yeager’s courtroom last Thursday. 

Seated on a bench alongside other inmates, Langham unleashed a sudden and forceful attack on his fellow inmate Berdon Bridge, repeatedly striking him.  

As corrections officers intervened, separating the two inmates and handcuffing Langham, Judge Yeager slowly raised her head and arms, displaying a composed reaction to the violent episode.

The incident on Thursday was captured by courtroom cameras from various angles and later obtained by 8newsnow

The 18-year-old felon had a history of engaging in assault incidents prior to the courtroom battery seen on camera.  

Clark County District Court Judge Joe Hardy sentenced Langham to probation in September 2023 on several counts of battery by a prisoner, records show. 

At the time, he bit a corrections officer at Clark County Detention Center and threw a rock at another. He had pleaded guilty to the charge. 

Langham was also charged with and later pleaded guilty to battery with substantial bodily harm in 2022, according to court documents reviewed by the Post

Bridge pleaded guilty to one count of felony attempted ownership or possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. He was sentenced to one to four years in prison. 

Langham did not face any new charges stemming from the courtroom attack on February 1, according to 8newsnow.

The chaos last week was just one of the latest instances of violence at the Regional Justice Center in recent months. 

Glenn Cromwell Jr. was arrested and charged with battery after he lunged at Yousuf Azami, 59, who was charged with kidnapping and sexually assaulting a teenager in the same building.

Video from the January 23 incident shows Azami standing up and walking along the corridor of the courtroom before Cromwell gets up and follows him.

Cromwell, dressed in a grey tracksuit, briefly stops alongside the suspect before punching Azami in the face. 

He then repeatedly punches the suspect who has fallen to the floor before others, including a police officer, rush to break it up.

The pair were then separated and Cromwell was arrested and charged with battery. 

Azami, an actor born in Afghanistan, is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl who told police she got into his car before he drove her to his home and raped her. 

The young girl, who was 14 or 15 at the time of the alleged attack, told police she was searching to ‘get something to smoke and eat’ when she saw Azami in a marijuana dispensary parking lot.

Weeks before the two violent assaults happened, Deobra Redden, 30, attacked Clark County District Judge Mary Kay Holthus in the same court on January 3.

He said ‘nah f*** that b**ch’ as he launched himself at her after she rejected his pleas for more probation. He also attacked the court marshal – who needed 25 stitches as a result.

Redden later appeared in court to resume his sentencing, wearing shackles, a spit mask on his face and orange mitts on his hands, where he was sentenced to 19 to 48 months for a battery felony charge.

He was then charged with attempted murder for launching himself at Holthus. The charge was enhanced due to the victim’s age, as Holthus is over 60-years-old.
