The trial of James “Whitey” Bulger, who is charged with killing 19 people, turned into a loud, angry argument Tuesday between the alleged gang leader and his former right-hand man, NBC reported. 

Kevin Weeks, identified by prosecutors as a leader in Bulger’s team, gave “graphic” testimony about the murders Bulger is charged with, according to NBC.

Bulger hissed: “F— you!” when Weeks called him a “rat.”

Weeks yelled back: “F— you! What are you going to do!”

The judge reportedly stopped the exchange, reprimanding Bulger.
