Man with suspended driver’s license shows up to virtual court hearing while driving

A Michigan man accused of driving with a suspended license showed up to a virtual hearing while behind the wheel, surprising the presiding judge. Video from the hearing, which has since gone viral, shows the defendant, Corey Harris, in a vehicle when he connected to the Zoom call. Judge Cedric Simpson couldn’t hide his shock and asked if Harris was driving. “I actually go to my doctor’s office,” Harris said. “So just give me a second. I’m parking right now.” Simpson verified with attorneys that Harris’ hearing was about driving with a suspended license. “I look at his record and he doesn’t have a license,” Simpson said. “He’s suspended and he’s just driving.” “I don’t even know why he would do that,” Simpson continued. “Defendant’s bond is therefore revoked in this matter.” Simpson also ordered Harris to report to the county jail later that day.
