    Eyeball-dropping testimony leads to Philly mistrial

    IN THE blink of an eye Wednesday, an aggravated-assault trial was derailed on its first day after the victim's glass eye popped out on the witness stand.

    Right into his hand.

    Jurors gasped as a weeping John "Big Red" Huttick caught his fake peeper. Defense attorney Eileen Hurley demanded a mistrial, which Common Pleas Judge Robert P. Coleman granted.

    "It was shocking and unexpected. He caught it in his hand and sort of held it there," Hurley said.

    All in favor of a mistrial - vote eye.

    The internet is not a good place to shop for eyeballs. Always look for the country of origin.

    When I read that this morning I thought it shifty. They called it a glass eye. Ocular prosthetics are made from plastic. They are custom so it shouldn't have just popped out. The only thing I could think of was either he has a horrible ocularist or there was so much damage to the socket it can not be held in correctly?
