Mistrial Declared When Victim's Eyeball Falls Out

A punch during bar brawl in 2011 caused John Huttick to lose his left eye. Huttick sued Matthew Brunelli in Philadelphia over the incident. Then he lost the eye -again!

Huttick, 48, was on the witness stand Wednesday, weeping as he told the Common Pleas Court jury about the impact of losing an eye when he literally lost his eye.

Two jurors, seated feet away, gasped and started to rise as if they wanted to leave. Huttick caught the $3,000 prosthetic blue eye and cried out.

The judge immediately declared a mistrial due to the incident. He said it was an "unfortunate, unforeseen incident," and set a new trial date for March 4th. Link -via Arbroath
