DAVID GREENE, HOST:

The Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton told NBC2 in Tulsa that a lawyer walked into a courtroom with bedbugs literally falling from his clothing. No mention of whether the lawyer was creating this chaos intentionally, though the sheriff did say the lawyer shook his jacket over prosecutors' files.
