Grand jury proceedings in Arizona were interrupted after the foreman found a threatening note that turned out to be from his friends.
The foreman went out to his truck during a court break and found a threatening note there.
It said, "You better not find my dad guilty! I followed you home last Wednesday I know where you live, a******! Early Road sound familiar?"
Jury proceedings were postponed as detectives investigated, and traced the note back to the man's friends who were playing a joke on him.
No word on whether or not the idiots were charged with anything, or if they're still friends with the foreman.
