RHINELANDER - Oneida County Circuit Judge Michael Bloom apparently didn't appreciate a standoff suspect's letter to him.
Mathew Smith, 21, wrote Bloom requesting a speedy trial, saying he "will not stand for this."
"There's a two word phrase that I could apply to Mr. Smith's conduct. Just in case you're not clear, it's a crude term that's synonymous with the tail end of the human digestive tract," said Bloom in court on Friday.
Smith has been in the Oneida County jail since November 16. That's when he sparked an hours-long standoff by threatening to slit his girlfriend's throat, according to police.
He has yet to even enter a plea.
The public defender's office says they've been trying to find Smith a new attorney. They've contacted nearly 30 lawyers.
Smith's original attorney Chad Lynch withdrew after a conflict in the case.
Smith also asked to lower his $5,000 cash bond. Judge Bloom said even if he did lower Smith's bail, Smith would still be in custody on an un-related case.
Smith is due back in court on January 2.
