too fat for court

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) A Grand Rapids, Michigan man claiming he’s too large to go to court to face the felony charges says he’s already suffering enough.

“I am living in my own prison system,” said Jeff Klein, 44, who says his health issues have caused his case to remain unresolved for two years. “I am suffering.”

Klein was charged in 2012 after police say he called in a bomb threat to a mobile home community in Cedar Springs. In a phone interview with NBC affiliate WOOD, Klein admitted to the crime.

“I’m very sorry for what I did,” Klein said. “Nowadays it’s serious because everybody is blowing up things. I know this is serious, I’m sorry.”

Klein is currently hospitalized after becoming ill Wednesday, the same day WOOD captured and aired video of the allegedly bedridden man driving his car down the southeast Grand Rapids street where he lives.
