SPRINGFIELD (CBS) – Chaos broke out in a Springfield courtroom Tuesday, after a judge ordered a drug suspect’s bail to be revoked.

Our Springfield affiliate‘s cameras were rolling as security guards tackled Orland Ocasio, who had hopped over a bench and table, and was charging toward the judge.

Ocasio was facing a drug possession charge.

The judge had just ruled that charge was a probation violation.

He ordered the 26-year-old back behind bars.

Court officers were eventually able to get Ocasio back under control and out of the courtroom.

He now could face more charges stemming from this outburst.
