Brawl Erupts at Central Florida Courthouse

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say three people are facing charges following a brawl at a central Florida courthouse.
A "stand your ground" hearing had just been postponed in the first-degree murder case of Jayson Clair on Monday when the families of the suspect and the victims -- brothers Joel and James Kun -- began to fight. The Orlando Sentinel reports that a detective who investigated the case was knocked to the floor, and several others were injured.
Osceola County deputies and a St. Cloud police officer placed several men in handcuffs. The sheriff's office reports that three men were charged with a misdemeanor count of affray.
Authorities say Clair fatally shot the unarmed Kun brother outside a St. Cloud bar in June 2011 after they beat him several times during the evening. Clair claims he acted in self-defense.
