600-pound drug dealer is so obese makeshift courtroom had to be set up in back of ambulance

A 600-pound drug dealer is so morbidly obese he had to plead guilty to cocaine trafficking from the back of an ambulance. The emergency vehicle was driven up to the loading bay of Hamilton County Courthouse in Cincinnati, Ohio, Wednesday morning, with Kirk Lenell Smith slumped in a bed in the back. Smith, 42, admitted cocaine trafficking and being a felon in possession of a gun during the bizarre hearing, which was attended by the Cincinnati Enquirer. Explaining the decision to set up a makeshift court, Judge Tom Heekin said: ‘Moving Kirk Smith from the ambulance would endanger his health and well-being.’
