A New York man sure knows how to clear a room. Chaos erupted in the Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday after court spectators spotted bed bugs crawling up the neck of a man waiting to answer a desk-appearance ticket.

New York Daily News reports that the incident started at around 11:30AM when a court officer noticed a ruckus beginning in the back of one of the courtrooms and asked what was happening.

A woman stood and pointed at the man announcing that she’d seen bugs crawling on a man sitting near her. The exclamation caused the surrounding people to scramble away from the creepy-crawling-carrying man, including the inquiring officer.

Court officers cleared the last three rows, allowing proceedings to continue until an exterminator arrived to de-bug the courtroom.
