Randall Margraves, asked the judge to grant him five minutes in a locked room Nassar, who he described as a "demon".

Seemingly frustrated with the judge's response, Margrave then threw himself towards the defence table, shouting "let me at him" with a raised fist, before he was tackled to the ground by court officers. When she refused, he asked for "just one minute alone with that bastard".

He added, "What if this happened to you guys?"

"This is letting him [Nassar] have this power over us, okay?" she said.

After the incident, the judge cleared the courtroom and took a slight break.

"You know that I can't do that".

Earlier Friday, the judge reopened the hearing by saying controversial comments made by one of Nassar's attorneys were "unfortunate". Their father, Randall Margraves, later addressed the court, telling the judge he was a "distraught father".

The man, named as Randall Margraves, had to be restrained by three court security officers after he lunged at Nassar during a hearing in MI on Friday.

The sentencing was put on hold as Margraves was escorted out of the courtroom.

Randall Margraves' daughters Lauren and Madison were among nearly 30 women who gave victim statements in the case.
