Pardon my French

This one's too good to pass up. It's from yesterday's Chicago Tribune:

A bond hearing today for a man charged with stabbing a woman at Oak Street Beach was delayed after the suspect walked into a Chicago courtroom and spoke to a judge in French, CLTV reported.

Taken aback, Criminal Court Judge Colleen Ann Hyland rescheduled the hearing for Monday and ordered Herbert Haraburd, 45, to undergo a mental health evaluation this weekend at Cermak Health Services at Cook County Jail.


Really, now. French. Sheesh.
