OFFICER AMBUSHED WHILE ON DUTIY IS RECOVERING IN THE HOSPITAL TONIGHT. AND TODAY, THE MAN ACCUSED OF SHOOTING THAT OFFICER APPEARED IN COURT, AND HIS EXCHANGE WITH THE JUDGE WAS QUITE BIZARRE. DONNA RIPODO IS THERE WITH MORE. Reporter: MR. MEXI, GOOD MORNING, YOU’VE BEEN CHARGED WITH FIVE COUNTS OF ATTEMPTED FIRST-DEGREE MURDER WITH A DEADLY WEAPON. ACCUSED SHOP SHOOTER FACED A JUDGE? BOND COURT, READING OFF THE LAUNDRY LIST OF CHARGES, FIVE ATTEMPTED MURDER CHARGES, TOPPING THAT LIST. SIR, THESE ARE NONBONDABLE OFFENSES. Reporter: WITHIN MOMENTS, THINGS TOOK A TURN TOWARDS THE BIZARRE. HOW DOES A KID WHO SHOT A CHURCH GET A BOND. MY LIFE WAS IN DANGER BY CROOKED COPS. DON’T TALK ABOUT THE FACTS OF THE CASE. Reporter: POLICE SAYING MEXIA AMBUSHED AND SHOT OFFICER STARLING WHILE HE SAT IN HIS PATROL CAR. HE PARKED NEXT TO STARLING AND FOR NO APPARENT REASON, SHOT UP HIS CAR. STARLING WAS SHOT IN THE BUTTOCK, RADIOING FOR HELP AND ABLE TO GET A DESCRIPTION OF THE SHOOTER. OFFICERS ARRESTED MEXIA A SHORT TIME LATER. BACK IN BOND COURT, THE JUDGE ADVISED HIM TO LISTEN TO HIS PUBLIC DEFENDER AND NOT TO SPEAK, BUT HE WASN’T HAVING IT. I’M REPRESENTING MYSELF MA’AM AND I HAVE A LAWYER. I HAVE A LAWYER, TOO. I WAS IN THREAT FOR MY LIFE. THEY WERE TRYING TO KILL ME, MA’AM. I DO FIND PROXIMATE CAUSE FOR ALL OF THE OFFENSES THAT ARE — PROBABLY CAUSE FOR ALL OF THESE OFFENSES. NOT OF THESE OFFENSES ARE NO BOND. THAT’S CRAZY. Y’ALL GOT MORE BLOOD ON Y’ALL THAN I GOT BLOOD ON MY HANDS. Reporter: AND THOUGH HE DISMISSED THE PUBLIC DEFENDER, THE ATTORNEY ASKED HIM TO REMAIN DESPITE ARGUMENTS FROM THE STATE.
