Jackson Arrives Late In Court

Jackson arrives late in court, hears more testimony from accuser

Michael Jackson's accuser is back on the stand, following a bizarre morning at the pop star's trial.

Jackson arrived late to court because of what his lawyers said were medical problems, prompting the judge to threaten to arrest him. The 15-year-old accuser later resumed testifying, focusing on the now-infamous documentary in which Jackson said he shared his bed with kids. The accuser said Jackson suggested they hold hands during the documentary -- and said he spontaneously put his head on Jackson's shoulder. The boy described Jackson as his "best friend." The teen also said Jackson gave him wine in a soda can -- saying Jackson described it as "Jesus juice."

Jackson appeared distressed upon his late arrival today, looking disheveled and leaning on his bodyguards.
