TULSA, OK -- A disturbance on the 7th floor of the Tulsa County Courthouse Monday morning prompted a judge to clear the floor. 

Courthouse officials say onlookers who were outside a courtroom were causing a disturbance and a judge instructed the sheriff's deputies to clear the hallways. 

An attorney connected to a trial taking place on the 7th floor became irate and complained to the sheriff's deputies, officials say. 

Courthouse officials say the attorney had an altercation with a sheriff's deputy as the attorney tried to get into a judge's chambers. 

Officials say the attorney calmed down when the judge threatened to hold him in contempt.

The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident.
