Texans Stunned By Who Shows Up For Jury Duty
It was business as usual at the George L Allen Sr. Courts Building in Dallas, Texas, Wednesday morning — with one major caveat.
Former President George W. Bush astonished jurors when he arrived for jury duty at Judge Eric Moye’s court at about 9:00 a.m.
“They made it seem like it was an anonymous juror that never showed up and then they brought him in,” Sheri Coleman told The Dallas Morning News, adding that the president was “awesome” and “surprising.”
“He was very personable, very friendly, just ‘hey I’m here to serve,’ he asked questions and was very nice,” she said. “I loved it.”
Joe Ehambe, who also received a jury summons, sat directly in front of Bush.
“I turned around and he was seated right behind me and I said, “I think I know that guy,” he told The Dallas Morning News. “Then the judge introduced him and said it was an honor to have the former president of the United States in the court.” More
