Arrest Warrant Issued for Michael Jackson
Jackson Trial Update
Thursday March 10
Michael Jackson didn't show for court this morning. His lawyer, Tom Mesereau, says he is at a hospital getting treatment for a back problem. The judge has issued an arrest warrant and given Jackson one hour to appear or he will forfeit the $3 million bail. Jackson's accuser was set to continue his testimony today.
Additional news I've heard: Jackson woke up at 5:30 with a sharp shooting back pain. He felt paralyzed. He went to the hospital thinking he would get a muscle relaxer and ended up staying a few hours.
Officers are on their way to meet his car at the highway and bring him to court.
The hour is up, Jackson just arrived at the courthouse. He's walking out of his own accord. Stiffly. He looks shaken. There's a crowd outside shouting "Innocent." He's wearing blue hospital pants. Will the Judge put him in custody? He's five minutes late.
