MICHAEL STEINBERG PERP WALK


MICHAEL STEINBERG ARREST  PERP WALK IN COURTHOUSE

While waiting for the appearance of Michael Steinberg and the courtroom to open,
out of the elevator walked 2 FBI agents and a tall man in a navy sweater, dark pants, very coiffed 
grey hair. Then I notice his hands were behind him,  that he was handcuffed and realized,  
this must be Michael Steinberg.
 The agents tried to enter the courtroom, it was locked so they tried to find another spot 
put him, then finally decided to try the stairwell, and appears they got into the court that way.
It was moving way too fast  for me to capture on the spot, esp with no materials out to draw.
By the time we got into the courtroom, 
Steinberg was seated inside  and his handcuffs were off .
So I drew this from memory. What struck me was how his head was held so high 
and he was so polished looking. An odd contrast w those handcuffs. 
I had read he did not want to be perp walked, they did not do it outside
but they did it in the courthouse.
