That wouldn’t stop me from punching him . I once ask the judge if I could go ahead a pay the fine for knocking a deserving person out twice while I was there , the court room erupted in laughter, he banged his gavel and when everyone got quite ,he said I’d hold you in contempt of court. But I know you well enough to know your serious and no you can’t. He then instructed the bailiff to hold me till the injured party could exit the building. The fine was pretty hefty for those days , $ 250 I believe it was , and worth every penny . I miss the old days more and more every year!
