Man loses eye in court

John Huttick was in court on the witness stand describing how he lost his eye in a bar fight. Suddenly said eye — the new prosthetic one, not the old one he lost — popped out of its socket and landed in his hand. The jurors gasped in fright. The judge promptly declared a mistrial.

This case has sparked my curiosity, so I'm going to keep an eye out to see what happens during the rescheduled trial. [nj.com]

This is a story of an eye eye, right?

If you're going to keep an eye out, that will be another mistrial!

At the nursing home I worked with a girl who had a glass eye. She used to take it out to freak out another girl we worked with. It was hilarious!

Hilariously, the mugshot used in the auto-generated ad on the page shows a guy with only one eye. :-D
