A courthouse in Oklahoma was forced to shutter its doors Monday when a group of unwanted visitors snuck inside -- on a lawyer's jacket.
The Rogers County Courthouse said in a Facebook post it had to close its Claremore facility at noon because of a "confirmed case of bed bugs."
Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton told KJRH-TV that the unidentified lawyer came up to a third-floor courtroom with bugs falling out of his clothing.
"I was told the individual that had them also shook his jacket over the prosecutors' files," he told the television station.
