A man who went viral for joining a Zoom court hearing from his car with a suspended license says he was charged with contempt
A Michigan man says a judge is holding him in contempt after a video of him joining a Zoom hearing from his car while he had a suspended license went viral on Instagram, Reddit, and TikTok.
The 37-second video shows Kevon Burns, 28, driving a car while attending a court hearing over Zoom, despite having a suspended license due to a 2020 charge, court records show. The hearing appeared to concern a September 2020 charge of operating a motor vehicle "without security," according to court records. Operating a vehicle without security means driving without car insurance and is considered a misdemeanor in Michigan that can result in fines between $200-$500 or up to a year in prison.
