A burglary suspect in Florida broke down in the courtroom after an unlikely class reunion.
The Miami Judge was the first to recognize Arthur Booth as he took the stand. The two had been classmates in middle school and even played football together.
Booth’s reaction is now gaining national attention. His “Oh my goodness” comments show how emotional the moment was for him. The Daily Mail reports he broke down in tears and couldn’t stop crying.
Booth’s cousin told the paper he used to be a scholar and athlete, but drugs took over his life.
The family hopes this is a wake-up call.
