I don't see why this could be considered a crime. Personally, I think that the guy is a sign of the times--an example of rudeness overtaking our society. On the other hand, the courts really need to keep their eye on the ball. They've got a lot of problems to deal with that are more significant than this one, and let's face it, they've earned the level of disrespect they've gotten.
Contempt of court is not a "crime" exactly. But I don't see how it is even contempt of court. The two basic types of contempt of court are 1) telling off the Judge in open court, and 2) disobeying a court order. This is neither.
