LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A man has been jailed after he shouted a racial slur at a judge as he was being taken into custody.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1PMI0El) reports that Jefferson Circuit Juge Olu Stevens sentenced Adam Satterly to 60 days in jail on Monday, but reduced the sentence to one day after Satterly apologized on Tuesday.

A courtroom video shows Satterly, who is white, using the racial epithet after Stevens, who is black, revoked Satterly’s bond on several methamphetamine charges.

Satterly’s attorney, Christopher Thurman, did not immediately respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.
