Disorder in the Court as Teen Suspects Go Before Judge

There was disorder in the court Tuesday when outbursts and cursing erupted as three teens arrested after a car chase in Broward County went before a judge.

The three teens, all age 15, were arrested Monday after the chase. Authorities say they stole a car and led officers and deputies through Broward before they bailed out and tried to run for it in Lauderhill.

Two of the teens were given 21 days in juvenile pre-trial detention, while the third was given house arrest until trial. NBC 6 is not identifying the teens.

During the hearing for one teen given detention, he started cursing and had to be taken out of the courtroom. A girl also screamed out during the hearing and bailiffs cleared the courtroom.

A group of six teenagers who were uncooperative were put in handcuffs and two were charged with contempt of court and ordered to be held in detention for five days.
