-- "You making eyes at me?" Schweihs said from his wheelchair to a federal prosecutor during a status hearing in his criminal case.
"Yeah you, you making eyes at me? Do I look like a fag to you?" Schweihs asked.
Schweihs, looking pale and gaunt, first asked his attorneys if they were in a foreign country after apparently noticing that one of the prosecutors wears a turban.
Schweihs has a history of making racially insensitive remarks and has shown over the years a disdain for a wide variety of people.
Schweihs later referred to another federal prosecutor in court as "another a--hole."
U.S. District Judge James Zagel did not reprimand Schweihs but ended the hearing quickly after his last remark.
One of Schweihs' attorneys, Ellen Domph, said outside court that Schweihs is usually "very polite."
