Two people scheduled to appear in Johnston County Court on Tuesday on assault charges reportedly began fighting before they could enter the courtroom.
Omega Dezorah Parker, 23, of Kay Drive, Smithfield and Akia Miykal George, 20, of Shadow Bend Lane, Selma were charged with assaulting one another in a prior incident.
Before they entered the courtroom for the assault case they reportedly began fighting.
Johnston County deputies who were assigned to courthouse security quickly separated the pair and later charged both with simple affray.
Both were taken to jail then released on unsecured bonds.
