Washington Redskins Tight End Fred Davis Representing Himself in Bizarre Lawsuit Involving Juice
Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis has chosen to represent himself in a case against a woman, Makini R. Chaka, who claims he threw juice on her. Chaka is also representing herself in court.
Neither are attorneys. Let the chaos and hilarity ensue.
Already this lawsuit may be one of the most bizarre in the history of the United States legal system. With both Davis and Chaka representing themselves, any form of courtroom procedure has gone out the window, and fast.
Take, for example, this dialogue between the judge, Chaka and Davis:
Davis: "As it shows, you also have your hand on his genitals. I mean why would you take a picture like that?"
Chaka: "I do not. Let’s look closely at the exhibit right here, Judge. Where is my hand placed in this exhibit?"
Judge: "I do not answer questions. . . . The witness does."
Chaka: "Can you tell me where my hand is actually at in this photo?"
Davis: "It looks like it’s in the genitals to me. I mean, your hands are on his genitals. Your hand is on his—"
Interactions like this are priceless, especially in a courtroom setting where one can imagine they're both as stern and serious as can be.
The biggest question in all of this is that Fred Davis gets paid nearly $6 million per year. He should be able to afford an attorney.
