A Florida man accused of burglary unexpectedly reunited with a former middle school classmate in court. The 49-year-old man got emotional when he remembered the girl, who is now a judge, from 35 years ago.

Judge Mindy Glazer told the court, Arthur Booth, was not the boy she remembered. “He was the best kid in middle school. I used to play football with him, all the kids looked up to him and look what has happened. I’m so sorry to see you there.”

Judge Glazer told Booth she hopes he’s able to change his ways and wished him good luck.
