WATCH: Client punches attorney in court

Ohio

(WKYC) Police body camera footage captured a client punching his lawyer in the face in an Ohio courtroom Tuesday. 

It happened just seconds after David Chislton was sentenced to 47 years in prison for assaulting his girlfriend and setting fire to an apartment building back in 2017.

Chislton, who pleaded guilty to the charges, was apparently upset with the length of his sentence, and decided to punch Aaron Brockler in the face.

Despite the punch, Brockler says he forgives Chislton.
