Apparently Chicagoans aren't just assaulting visiting team coaches anymore: an attempted robbery defendant suddenly attacked his attorney during a bond hearing, punching him repeatedly in the face and sending him into seizures. Two bailiffs, the other attorney and even the judge helped to subdue the guy, who now faces aggravated battery charges as well. The defense attorney was released from the hospital this morning.
