(WDTN/CNN) - An Ohio man was not too happy after being sentenced Wednesday to 40 years in prison for armed robbery.

After learning of his sentence, Ricky Hand, 46, took out pill bottles filled with human waste and started throwing it at his attorney.

The bottles were hidden in an arm sling he was wearing.

Courtroom officials quickly restrained Hand, who may now face additional charges related to the outburst.

Authorities said Hand is a career criminal who committed dozens of robberies.

Officials are now investigating how Hand was able to smuggle the bottles into court.
