Man Who Punched Attorney Now In Trouble In Jail

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky man who made headlines earlier this month when he punched his attorney in court is now accused of hitting fellow inmates.
Police say Peter Hafer of Cynthiana assaulted two fellow inmates in the laundry room of the Bourbon County Jail on Tuesday. One of the inmates received a bloody nose and the other a black eye according to police.
Police say the 30-year-old Hafer was upset because he did not get a T-shirt back from the laundry.
Earlier this month a courtroom videotape caught Hafer hitting public defender Doug Crickmer in court, where Hafer was making an appearance on charges of burglary, theft and criminal mischief. Crickmer decided not to file charges for the assault.

    The attorney probably took his money and didnt do anything for him but make him plea guilty and they through the book at the poor boy.

    I am pretty sure when he gets to prison he will meet his match. He may want to learn to control his anger before he gets there. He will pick a fight with the wrong person and learn. Idiot.

    Besides the wife beater, I'm guessing he was wearing "boxers" which gives him all the reasons in the world to be a "Bobby Bad A**"

    What's his problem?! Apparently he can't keep his hands to himself..he'll stop when he meets his match. Somebody out there bigger and badder than him who will give him back his dues plus more.

    After thinking this thru a bit more, my gut feeling is that it was a "wife beater" t-shirt. I mean, given his track record it should go without saying. Give me time, I'm sure I can come up with more..LOL!

    This guy has serious issues. He is somebody that you will read about killing somebody. He does not need publicity. My personal opinion is that he should be in huge trouble of the lawyer assault. He needs psychological help for sure!
