The City Criminal Court in Albany, New York, reopened Thursday after a forced fumigation following hundreds of cockroaches being released inside.

The court, which had been closed since Tuesday, was forced to close amid a fight in one of its courtrooms, which was the same moment the bugs were released.

INSIDE THE COURTROOM: JOHNNY DEPP V. AMBER HEARD BOMBSHELL VERDICT

Four people were being arraigned when one began recording court proceedings. A fight broke out when that person was asked to stop.

As a result, 34-year-old Clyanna Lightbourn was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, criminal contempt, and tampering with physical evidence. Lightbourn used to work at the Senate but was subsequently fired, according to a state Senate official. She will be due back in court on Jul 5.
