    Some might say that a lawyer deserves this kind of treatment --- but, truly, no one does.

    A robbery suspect earned himself a mistrial when he smeared feces on his attorney and threw it at jurors.

    Defendant Weusi McGowan, 37, had somehow snuck a plastic bag filled with excrement with  into the San Diego Superior Court building, Paul Levikow, spokesman for the District Attorney's Office, told the San Diego Union-Tribune.

    McGowan attacked the head and face of his public defender with the malodorous bag's contents then flung more at the jury just as they were taking their mid-morning break, the paper reported.

    A mistrial was declared.

    McGowan was reportedly upset because the judge had rejected his request to dismiss his lawyer.

    McGowan was facing charges including kidnapping and assault in connection with a robbery in Barrio Logan in October 2007.

    It was unclear what further charges he would be facing for his monkey-house like shenanigans.
