Despite his brave but bumbling efforts to defend himself while in costume, Dennis Hawver was disbarred by the Kansas Supreme Court for “inexplicable incompetence” during a 2005 capital murder trial.

The video above starts at the beginning of Hawver’s argument. The best part, though, is at 39:06 where he bangs on the podium and says “I AM INCOMPETENT!” which is a dubious strategy if your competence is the question before the court.
