A defendant in the "bad butt" injections case was denied a restraining order following an alleged attack on him at a taping for a Spanish-language talk show, his attorney said Friday.
Corey Eubank was in court in Miami seeking a permanent restraining order against his alleged attackers during last month's taping of Telemundo's "Cristina" show.
The judge denied the restraining order without prejudice against Brunetta Brown and continued a temporary injunction against her daughter Shaquandra Brown, said attorney Jim Lewis.
He added that another hearing date was set for Feb. 23.
According to a Doral Police report, Eubank was appearing on the show at the Blue Dolphin Studios in Doral when he was hit above his left eye by a prop syringe thrown by a woman.
Eubank and 30-year-old Oneal Ron Morris were arrested in November and charged with practicing medicine without a license after victims alleged Morris had injected their legs and buttocks with a mixture that included Fix-a-Flat, cement and superglue.
Police say Eubank was Morris' accomplice, though she denies that claim.
According to the police report, Eubank said the show was taping when she was attacked by Brunetta Brown, the mother of Shaquanda Brown, one of Morris' and Eubank's alleged victims.
Video footage showed Eubank sitting on a chair before a member of the audience made her way to the stage. Security guards quickly moved in to separate Eubank from her alleged attackers as all hell broke loose.
Eubank told police Brunetta Brown threw the syringe – which didn't have a needle in it – at her, hitting her in the forehead, the report said.
Brown denied throwing the syringe at Eubank but admitted to getting into an altercation with Eubank, the report said. No arrests were made though a temporary restraining order was granted against the Browns.
"The judge took testimony from my client and Brunetta Brown," said Lewis said Friday.
The judge also saw the video of the incident, which was taken off the TV, but it wasn't clear who threw the object, Lewis said.
The video has been subpoenaed, and when it is available, he will refile the motion, Lewis said.
"We are disappointed, but understand the conflict in the evidence that the court had to consider," he said.
I’m not doing well at all. I am agitated. This is beginning to be life-threatening," Eubank told NBC Miami after the incident. "It’s gone way too far. This is really frustrating me.”
Both Morris and Eubank are out on bond and have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.
The names of attorneys for the Browns weren't immediately known.
