    Former president George W. Bush surprised a Dallas courthouse Wednesday morning when he showed up as a member of the jury pool.

    After receiving a jury summons, Bush sat through the jury selection panel for a case in Judge Eric Moye's court on the 14th civil district at the George Allen Courts Building in Dallas, according to Freddy Ford, the president's spokesperson.

    Surprisingly, (or maybe not), Bush was not picked to serve as a juror.

    Bush sat there for about three hours and posed for photos with fellow jury candidates, judges and other court staff before leaving with his security detail.

    “It would be great if everyone took their jury service the same way [Bush] did,” Moye told The Dallas Morning News. “He understood it was important, he took it in good nature and he was engaged and talked to the lawyers.”
