A man on trial for slashing his roommate with a scalpel was in court "with a spit-shield around his mouth." That's because Akieme Nesbitt's lawyer said Nesbitt spat on him. Nesbitt has gained a certain kind of infamy for badmouthing Judge Carol Berkman; the Post reports, "On one occasion, he told her to 'Suck my d---,' a request to which she responded, 'Application denied.'" Oh, and Nesbitt slashed his roommate because, after he told his roommate he was hoping to work at Pathmark, his roommate said, "I have too much pride to work for Pathmark."
