The Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office said when called to magnetometers at court facilities it’s usually for a gun, not a half-naked man.
Lawyer Jeffrey Pollock was passing through metal detectors at the Family Division Complex for a hearing at the Family Division Complex on Wednesday afternoon when MPs said he was continuing to raise the alarm.

Pollock explained that his suspenders were the culprit and he didn’t want to take them off, but guards told him to go through until the alerts stopped, the sheriff’s office said.
After a heated argument with the guards, MPs said Pollock unhooked his suspenders, dropped his pants, took them off, put them in the trash and went through the metal detector.
As he stood in the family division rotunda, wearing only his shirt and underwear, the sheriff’s office said deputies were called and arrested him.
