During a simulated court appearance in Michigan, a judge was not entertained by a defendant's explicit screen name.

According to the Daily Beast, St. Joseph County Judge Jeffrey Middleton slammed a "fool" who entered the court's Zoom meeting for an arraignment.

Nathaniel Saxton was charged with drug paraphernalia possession in Three Rivers, Michigan. Still, he was soon threatened with contempt of court when he appeared with the username "Buttf—ker 3000."

"Then we'll bring this fool in," Middleton says at the 17:25 mark of the hearing shared on YouTube Tuesday as Saxton appears with the uncensored screenname.

The judge greeted him and asked his name. The "fool" said his name is Nathaniel Saxton.

"Your name's not Buttf--ker 3000, you yo-ho, logging in to my court with that as your screenname," the judge said. "What kind of idiot logs into court like that?," he added.

Saxton then blushed and denied typing in the name. He made an attempt to apologize. But the judge returned him to the online waiting room.

"You can sit in limbo for a while and think about what you call yourself online," Middleton said.

Saxton later returned to the video conference call using the username "Nathaniel Saxaon," which he seemed to misspell. He said that his sister set up the Zoom account and that the name was a "inside joke" between them. He later expressed regret for the incident.

Reports on the law and crime For possession of drug paraphernalia, a breach of a city ordinance, Saxton faced up to 90 days in prison and a $500 fine. Prosecutor John Barnes said per Law and Crime that authorities discovered Saxton having a used syringe that tested positive for meth contamination.

When Middleton said the usual fine for the crime is $200, Saxton reportedly worked at a horse trailer plant pled guilty. He confessed to possessing the syringe and other paraphernalia and was sentenced to a $200 fine.

During the simulated court session, the judge sent Saxton a message for his sister and chastised another defendant for wearing a hat.

Middleton said that his sister nearly had him arrested for contempt of court.
