18-year-old who crashed car into Georgia Walmart gives judge middle finger at hearing
An 18-year-old Tallahassee, Florida resident charged with murder elicited gasps from a courtroom Friday during his bond hearing.
Khalil Pugh, who was charged with felony murder, malice murder and vehicular homicide, flipped his middle fingers at the judge, according to WCTV, when his bond was revoked.
Pugh allegedly crashed a silver sedan into a Thomasville, Georgia Walmart last Wednesday. According to a Thomasville Police Department report, the crash injured pedestrians at the retail store and killed Kenneth Kennedy, 66, of Monticello, Florida.
Police say Pugh intentionally crashed his car into Walmart's front doors and that he was seen attempting to get into cars earlier in the day.

Pugh attempted to make a run for it after crashing the car, but bystanders who were inside stopped him before he was able to get away, said Kennedy's wife, Kathy Kennedy, who was with him at the store that day.
“He was a really good-hearted, wonderful man, and everybody knew him in Monticello,” Kathy said. “He would do anything in the world for anybody and did not know a stranger.”
Thomasville police are asking witnesses of the crash to contact the department at 229-227-3302.
