Detroit man raps in court

A Detroit man used a unique defense to explain why he should not be facing charges. The man performed a freestyle rap to explain his case in open court.

A Detroit CBS affiliate reports that “Callius Moon is facing two felony charges: malicious destruction of fire or police property and resisting or obstructing a police officer.”

Moon was arraigned by District Judge John Chmura via CCTV video Tuesday in a Warren District courtroom from a city jail. As the judge explained the serious charges he faces, Moon began to plead his case with a freestyle rap.

Moon has requested a court-appointed attorney, according to
