Matthew Bartlett, a server at TGI Friday’s, was called out by the judge after the defense rested and jurors and attorneys had left the courtroom.
Perry asked the noticeably shaken Bartlett why he flipped off Jeff Ashton, a state prosecutor in Anthony’s murder trial, while court was in session. Bartlett couldn’t give a good reason.
Perry showed Barlett a picture of someone giving the finger in court, and Bartlett sheepishly acknowledged it was him.
