FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A man authorities say was the
shotgun-wielding robber in three violent robberies of Dunkin' Donuts stores in South Florida is being held without bond after repeatedly barking at a judge during a court hearing.
Broward County Judge John Hurley asked a series of questions at
a hearing Friday, and 19-year-old James Herard continued to reply
"ruff." A telephone message seeking comment was left at the
public defender's office representing Herard.
At the Delray Beach store on Nov. 26, authorities say one man outside and three customers inside were shot. The Tamarac branch was robbed a day later and two suspects shot a man in the back and stole cash from customers. The victim remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Four other suspects are in custody for the robberies.
