There are some people in this world – many, perhaps - who believe former US president George W Bush – belongs in a courtroom.
On Wednesday, they got their wish, sort of, when the 69-year-old sparked no small amount of surprise when he showed up for jury duty.
At least my interns have fun! Pres. George Bush Jr. was at the courthouse today. Jury duty is required of all! pic.twitter.com/d3Y5Q6wmsE— Staci Williams (@StaciWilliams8) August 5, 2015
"I don't have the details but I do know the president took part in jury duty today," Sara Owen, a spokeswoman at Mr Bush's office in Dallas told The Independent.
The Dallas Morning News said Mr Bush joined the jury pool at the George L Allen Sr Courts Building in Dallas on Wednesday morning. His Secret Service detail could be seen outside.
Fellow juror Sheri Coleman told the newspaper: “They made it seem like it was an anonymous juror that never showed up and then they brought him in."Reuse content
