CHICAGO (AP) - Pity the prospective juror named Mr. T.
He showed up for jury duty, then was dismissed after hours of down time - which he used to sign autographs and pose for pictures.
Mr. T was called for jury duty at Cook County Circuit Court on Monday. The Chicago native said he enjoyed fulfilling his civic responsibilities, even though he found - like countless others - that hours can pass before a judge decides to dismiss you.
He showed up for jury duty in camouflage pants, a T-shirt and a longer version of his usual Mohawk haircut.
Mr. T is best remembered for the 1980s TV series "The A-Team" and as Clubber Lang in "Rocky III," which his catch phrase come from: "I pity the fool."
