Jackson late again.

For the second time in less than two weeks, Michael Jackson arrived late for his child molestation trial yesterday, walking slowly and stiffly into court.

But the judge ordered evidence to resume with no explanation of what transpired during a 45-minute delay.

Judge Rodney Melville ordered lawyers to continue questioning an investigator, sheriff's Sergeant Conn Abel, who was on the stand in Santa Maria, California, last week when the trial adjourned.

The pop star had been threatened with arrest on March 10 when he arrived more than an hour late in court after an early morning trip to a hospital for treatment of what his lawyers said was a back injury.

Despite the threat, Melville took no action that time.
