A Florida nurse on Wednesday was seen performing a butt injection on a male patient while waiting for her virtual court hearing to start.
Miami Herald reporter David Ovalle earlier Wednesday tweeted a picture of a man getting a butt injection from the defendant, Niurka Aguero, during the Zoom court hearing.
“MIAMI ZOOM COURT: We’ve reached peak 305. Someone appears to be getting a butt injection while appearing in a virtual hearing,” Ovalle wrote in his post, referring to Miami’s zip code.

“It’s my understanding that the defendant was actually the nurse or whoever was giving the injection, which actually makes it a gazillion times more bizarre,” Ovalle said in an email to The Hill.
Ovalle told Business Insider that he’s witnessed Zoom court hearings featuring a dental appointment, a pig, and a goat.
“Before COVID, I used to always say the Miami courthouse was the most absurd theater in town, and entrance was free,” Ovalle said. “Nothing has changed in the Zoom age.”
“It seems that during the waiting period prior to the case being brought before the judge, Niurka Aguero was involved in some kind of procedure involving a male receiving an injection in the buttocks, which she appears to have inadvertently broadcast (via Zoom),” Ed Griffith, a spokesperson for the State Attorney’s office, told Insider.
“Needless to say, it appears that everyone involved in the Zoom court call was surprised,” Griffith added.
