JUST IN: Father of three daughters who were all assaulted by Larry Nassar tries to tackle the disgraced doctor in court, after asking the judge to grant him "five minutes alone in a room with this demon" https://t.co/4VW6r844D0 https://t.co/H9VrhayRHT— CNN (@CNN) February 2, 2018
After two of his daughters spoke, the father, Randall Margraves, asked the judge for "five minutes" in a locked room with Nassar. The judge said she could not do that.
Margraves then asked for one minute, but the judge said she also couldn't allow it. He then rushed at Nassar.
Two of his daughters had given statements to the court. They said their other sister also had been molested by Nassar.
Crying could be hurt in the courtroom as Nassar was escorted out. Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis told families in the courtroom to "use your words" and that violence "is not helping your children."
