A melee broke out in a courtroom in Ocala, Florida after four men were found guilty of murdering a man in 2016. After the verdicts were announced by the jury, Travis Davis started to attack his defense attorney Daniel Hernandez. The entire brawl was caught on grainy surveillance camera footage. 

After Davis started throwing punches at Hernandez, Kelvon Grimmage, joined in while deputies struggled to break up the fight. Officers used tasers to subdue Davis, Grimmage and the third defendant Branden J.M. Banks. The fourth defendant, Kiila Tyrell Richardson, was being led out by police when the fight broke out and was not involved. 

Hernandez told Fox 35 that he "got about five punches to the back and the side of my head," but declined medical attention.  

All four men were sentenced to life in prison for their role in the murder of Courtney London in 2016. After the fight, Davis went back into the courtroom and apologized on the record for attacking Hernandez. 

The men will likely not face charges for the brawl.
