When Judge Simpson asked Harris if he was driving, he nonchalantly responded that he was parking for a doctor's appointment.

Judge Simpson expressing his astonishment said

"So, maybe I don't understand something. This is a driving while license suspended case, and he was just driving, and he didn't have a license?"


Faced with the undeniable evidence Judge Simpson had no choice but to revoke his bond and order him to surrender himself to the Washtenaw County jail by 6 p.m. that day.

Harris, visibly shocked by what the judge said could only utter, "Oh my god."
