Eric Trump could soon be involved in a criminal case — as a juror.

The president’s son reported for jury duty in lower Manhattan Thursday morning with a detail of at least three Secret Service agents in gray suits. He was spotted in a jury assembly room at 111 Centre St., a building that houses New York state criminal and civil courts, before being sworn in for a weapon possession case in front of Justice Althea Drysdale.

The article goes on to state the following:

Trump, 35, dressed in a navy blue suit with a white shirt open at the collar, quietly worked on his phone without being recognized by fellow potential jurors. A man near Trump snored after nodding off to sleep.

According to the report, jurors were visibly shocked when Trump was called in.
Trump drew laughs when he was asked if he had friends or relatives that were accused of a crime.

“Depends on who the accuser is,” he answered. “Not formally.”

Panelists “chuckled at this response,” according to the NY Daily News.

Another interesting exchange came when defense attorney Kyle Watters asked if Trump knew anyone who had been falsely accused of a crime.

“I absolutely do,” Trump reportedly replied.

“I had a feeling you would say that,” Watters said.
