WATCH: Man apologises in court by singing Adele

“Hello there, your honour. I want to say I’m sorry for the things I’ve done.”

A MAN APOLOGISED at his sentencing hearing by singing a version of Adele’s Hello.

Brian Earl Taylor (21) broke into song at a court in Washtenaw County, Michigan. He was being sentenced for unlawful imprisonment and carrying a concealed weapon.

“Hello there, your honour. I want to say I’m sorry for the things I’ve done and I’ll try and be stronger in this life I chose, but I want you to know that door I closed,” Taylor sang.

He went on to apologise in song to his mother and victim.

M Live reports that Taylor was arrested on 9 November 2015 after police found him holding a gun to another man in an apartment block.

Taylor was sentenced two years in prison for illegally carrying a concealed weapon and 18 months to 15 years for unlawful imprisonment. Five other charges against him in the case were dismissed.

He is scheduled for a final pretrial hearing on 24 March in a separate case for stealing or retaining a financial transaction device without consent.
