Brawl erupts in Michigan courthouse

July 14, 2009 (GENESEE COUNTY, Mich.) But that's exactly what happened Monday afternoon in Michigan's Genesee County Circuit Court.

The fight broke out after a man was sentenced to life in prison for killing the son of a former interim police chief.

In the end, several people involved in the brawl were arrested -- including the defendant's mother.

This is the second fight at this courthouse in two weeks and officials are calling for security changes.
