Juror's audition for 'Law and Order' delays attempted murder trial

Justice took a commercial break today when the trial of a grizzled ex-con who allegedly shot his parole officer was delayed so a juror could rush to an audition for the TV show “Law and Order.”

Juror No. 6 – a tall man with dark hair – told Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Wayne Ozzi that he had received a callback to audition for the popular crime drama, which is known to lift its plots straight from New York City streets and courtrooms.

“Good luck. We’ll be looking for you on TV,” said Ozzi, after he agreed to push back opening statements in the trial of Robert “Poison” Morales by five hours to accommodate the schedule for Juror No. 6, a struggling actor and producer whose injured wife is out of work.

Morales, 52, allegedly whipped out a 9mm handgun and blasted his parole officer in the shoulder inside a downtown Brooklyn parole office in 2010.
