Juror Announces They Are Witness in Case

A juror in an assault case listening to a 911 call blurted out from the jury box that she had witnessed the beating referenced in the call. The police indicated they had never been able to confirm the identity of the caller.

The judge immediately declared a mistrial. The jurors did undergo the voir dire process, but apparently the call never came up during the process.
