COLUMBUS, Ga. -- Moments before the murder trial of Zyderrious Platt was scheduled to begin in Superior Court this morning, a man jumped over the rail and attempted to attack Platt.
The Columbus Ledger Enquirer reports the man, who identified himself as the brother of the woman Platt is accused of killing, grabbed a wooden chair and threw it at Platt.
The attacker was tackled by at least three Muscogee County Sheriff's deputies. The chair missed Platt.
"I'll kill him; I'll kill him," the man yelled as he was being subdued by deputies.
