The suspect captured in a wild video last week attacking a Nevada judge after leaping over her bench inside a courtroom has now been charged with attempted murder in relation to the incident.

Deobra Redden is also facing a dozen other charges, including battery on a protected person resulting in substantial bodily harm and battery by a prisoner following the Jan. 3 courtroom attack on Judge Mary Kay Holthus in Clark County District Court, according to Fox5 Vegas.

"It’s just something you don’t usually see in court... nothing like this," Michael Lasso, a 27-year-old law clerk seen in video footage coming to the aid of Holthus, told ABC’s "Good Morning America."

"I just thought when he first hopped over that desk he was going for the door. And when he didn’t go for the door and instead he starts charging at the judge, I was just in shock and I just reacted," Lasso added. "I don't even want to think about what would have happened if I wasn't there."
