Randall Margraves, whose three daughters have accused Larry Nassar of sexually abusing them, tried to attack the disgraced former United States and Michigan State physician in court on Friday.

Margraves was ultimately surrounded by officers and escorted out of the courtroom: 

According to the Lansing State Journal's Matt Mencarini, Margraves asked Judge Janice Cunningham if he could have five minutes alone with Nassar in a locked room. When she said no, he proceeded to charge at Nassar. 

Detroit's WDIV relayed video of the exchange: 

"Give me one minute with that bastard," Margraves said following the incident, per Mencarini and Beth LeBlanc

Margraves was eventually released without being charged after apologizing to the court, per Alexandra Ilitch of WLNS.

Nassar has been back in court since Wednesday for a third sentencing hearing stemming from his abuse of young women and girls at Twistars Gymnastics Club in Dimondale, Michigan. 

According to the New York Times' Zach Schoburn and Christine Hauser, 65 women have been scheduled to make victim impact statements at some point throughout the hearing. 

Nassar has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison on child pornography charges and another 40 to 175 years for seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual misconduct after he sexually assaulted patients under the guise of medical treatment.
