  1. Stupid ass behavior for a judge

  2. I think he should no aloud to be a judge… What in the worl was he thinking?

  3. No he should not be a judge.This is not the first incident or DUI. How can he judge fairly when he breaks the law and gets a slap on the risk. I think the penalties should be higher for a man in his position. He obviously is ot thinking clearly or some other issues clouding his judgement to be almost 3 times over the LEGAL limit.
