Ohio Supreme Court Justice Alice Robie Resnick was arrested yesterday for drunk driving. Her BAC level was twice the legal limit. At 2 pm. I wonder how many shots of Jagermeister she had at lunch. Or maybe it was a tall glass of Kamchatka Vodka.
My favorite part of the story: After asking her to take part in an eye test, [the state trooper] says she refused and then, "rolled up her window and took off." Johnny Law caught up to her six miles down the road.
Full reports (with video and slideshow!) are available here and here.
Today's arrest of Resnick, the only Democrat on the bench, eclipses today's other big Ohio news - Mayor Coleman's announcement of his candidacy for governor. Coleman's response to the story: "Dammit, woman."
