*A man accused of stalking Ashanti went off in court on Tuesday (March 11), demanding that his case “switch judges” before guards ran him out of a New York courtroom.
Devar Hurd, 35, is accused of sending emails and texts to the singer. He served a multi-year sentence through 2012 after being convicted of harassing her in 2009, but supposedly resumed attempting to contact Ashanti upon his release.
“You know I didn’t do nothing,” Hurd said during his court date, according to the New York Daily News. “Why are you not honoring the simple fact of what’s going on? Isn’t that part of your job?”
Hurd told Justice Charles Solomon that there were “no text messages” and “no emails” to the singer, despite prosecutors’ claim that he sent over 100 messages to Ashanti, including graphic sexts.
“I feel like there’s a conflict of interest,” Hurd told Solomon.
After refusing to pipe down, the judge demanded Hurd be removed from the courtroom.
Hurd pled not guilty to the charges after a court date in August. His next date on trial is April 15.
