A Miami woman broadcast someone getting a butt injection during a court hearing over Zoom.
The Zoom butt injection was broadcast while she was waiting to be heard by the judge.
"Needless to say, it appears that everyone involved in the Zoom court call was surprised," a state attorney spokesperson said.
A Florida woman broadcast someone getting a butt injection during a Zoom court hearing Wednesday over her grand theft charges.
The defendant, Niurka Aguero, posted a video of a needle apparently going into someone's butt while waiting before her case was brought before the judge, according to the Miami-Dade State Attorney's office.
"It seems that during the waiting period prior to the case being brought before the judge, Niurka Aguero was involved in some kind of procedure involving a male receiving an injection in the buttocks, which she appears to have inadvertently broadcast (via Zoom)," Ed Griffith, a spokesperson for the State Attorney's office, told Insider.
"Needless to say, it appears that everyone involved in the Zoom court call was surprised," Griffith added.
It's common for routine status hearings over Zoom to include multiple defendants as they wait their turn before being heard by a judge.
An image of the Zoom butt injection was first shared on Twitter by Miami Herald reporter David Ovalle.
"MIAMI ZOOM COURT: We've reached peak 305. Someone appears to be getting a butt injection while appearing in a virtual hearing," Ovalle wrote on Twitter.
"Before COVID, I used to always say the Miami courthouse was the most absurd theater in town, and entrance was free," Ovalle said. "Nothing has changed in the Zoom age."
Eunice Sigler, a public information officer for the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida, declined to comment on behalf of Judge Thomas Rebull, who is overseeing the case.
"The Judge thanks you for reaching out to him, and he does very much understand and appreciate the role of the press; however, judicial ethics rules prohibit judges from speaking about pending cases," Sigler wrote.
Sigler signed off her email with a smiley face emoticon.
The attorney listed as Aguero's public defender in Miami-Dade County court records didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
At the hearing Wednesday, Rebull scheduled another hearing for July, court records show.
