An Oklahoma City defense attorney who goes by the nickname "The Drug Lawyer" received a public reprimand from the Oklahoma Supreme Court for sending threatening voicemails to a client, reports The Oklahoman's Kyle Schwab.

Chad Ward Moody, who ran for governor as a republican in 2014, defended his actions. He claimed his speech was protected.

The Supreme Court, though, found Moody's "recorded tirade" violated rules of conduct.

The two voicemails left by Moody last year were "unprofessional, inappropriate, vulgar, offensive and served no legitimate purpose," bringing discredit to the profession of law, according to the Supreme Court opinion.
