摘要:Roughly 50 seating passes for the Casey Anthony Trial will be issued to those who line up outside the courthouse.

Dozens of people have been waiting outside the Orange County Courthouse before sunrise and many already have scored tickets to the first day of the Casey Anthony trial — one of the most anticipated in Florida.

Already some drama sparked outside the courthouse as deputies pulled one Daytona Beach woman from line because she appeared intoxicated.

Several people had complained to deputies that the woman smelled of alcohol. Deputies spoke to her, smelled the red liquid inside her water bottle and removed her from the line. It's unclear what the bottle contained.

She had been the second person waiting in line since 5:30 a.m.
  First in line

The first hopeful spectator arrived about 4 a.m. Brett Schulman, 51, of Ocoee, said a deputy told him that he was the first person to arrive.

Schulman, who said he is a former Orange County Sheriff's Office deputy, is a fan of the Nancy Grace show on HLN, which has closely followed the ins and outs of the Anthony case. He said he was excited to have the opportunity to get a first-hand look at what he describes as Florida's biggest ever criminal trial.

"This is bigger than the Super Bowl," he said.

Happy pass holders

Rufus Gatlin, a 47-year-old man from Apopka, took the day off with his wife because he is "intrigued by the case."

Gatlin said he wants to know what took so long to report Anthony's 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie, missing from her home.

His wife, Bernadette Gatlin, has always wanted to attend a trial. "Why not this one?" she said. Gatlin and his wife are numbers 28 and 29 in line.

Some travel from miles away

Jenny Molina, 47, a medical assistant from Queens, N.Y., said she took her vacation now specifically because she wanted to come to Florida for Anthony's trial.

"Someone had to be here for Caylee," Molina said.

Law students eager to see the trial unfold and others curious to catch a glimpse of Anthony were thrilled when they received tickets to watch the trial.

"These cases don't come by often," 20-year-old University of Florida law student Justin McConnell said. "I'm interested in the defense."

His friend, 23-year-old Brenna Egan, another law student from Georgetown University, said she has a personal connection to the prosecution: Assistant State Attorney Jeff Ashton led their mock trial when she attended Boone High School.

The two students are numbers 30 and 32 in line.

How the passes work

Only those with these passes, which are given on a first-come, first-serve basis; credentialed media and legal teams, can access the 23rd floor for the duration of the trial, which is expected to unfold during the next six to eight weeks.

Deputies said prospective spectators will be asked to leave if they arrive before 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Each free pass is dated, assigned a seat number and valid only for the issue date. Those hoping to cash in are prohibited from selling them. Security measures have been put in place to prevent the passes from being reproduced.

Passes will be reissued at 1 p.m. for any seats vacated after the lunch hour. Court officials said those with media credentials, not spectators, are the only ones permitted to use their cellphones.

The courthouse parking garage on Orange Avenue will open at 5:30 a.m. Parking rates are $2.00 per hour or a maximum of $15.00 per day.
