Watch: Unusual punishment for US 'bully'

A judge in Ohio has ordered a man to appear in public, holding a sign that reads: "I am a bully".

Edmond Aviv was convicted for being very offensive towards his neighbours and their disabled children over 15 years.

A judge ordered him to sit with the sign at a busy junction for 5 hours as punishment.

It's hoped making him acknowledge what he's done will force him to think about the way he behaves in the future.
