Apparently the 'ex' husband was right to get a domestic violence order.
Melissa Hardwick was in court with her ex-husband, who was seeking a domestic violence order against her, when things turned violent. Dodson said it wasn't 30 seconds after the judge had called Hardwick's case, that Hardwick interrupted her ex-husband and started talking back to the judge. He said the judge told Hardwick she'd be held in contempt of court if she didn't quiet down, but that didn't stop her, and when the judge sentenced Hardwick to 10 days in jail, she jumped over the judge's bench, to the point where the judge had to dodge out of the way.
Below is the follow-up story:
Hardwick was given 120 days in jail for contempt of court for the incident. She'll also now have to go before a judge charges of third-degree terroristic threatening, intimidating a participant in the legal process and resisting arrest.
Hartwick's bond is set at $25,000 cash.
After the altercation, the judge ruled that the DVO filed by Hardwick's husband will remain.
